National Minimum Wage

The National Minimum Wage is the minimum pay per hour almost all employees are entitled to by law no matter what size the employer is.

The minimum wage rate depends on the age of the worker and if they’re an apprentice.

The current rates for 2015/16 are as follows:

21 and over = £6.70

18 to 20 = £5.30

Under 18 = £3.87

Apprentice* = £3.30

* The Apprentice rate applies to employees aged 16-18 and those aged 19 or over who are in their first year. All other apprentices are entitled to the National Minimum Wage for their age.

These rates usually change in October of each year so be aware that from 1st of October 2015 they may well increase.

Further information on calculation of the National Minimum Wage is available here.

Alison is a wonderful help, and is always at hand to sort out queries regarding staff holiday pay, and sick pay issues, even after I have run the monthly payroll. Her quick response resolves most things, and it's like having someone behind you in the office doing it for you!
