National Minimum Wage Change

The new national minimum wage rates have increased to £6.19 (from £6.08) for workers aged 21 or over and to £2.65 (from £2.60) for apprentices under 19 or those in their first year of an apprenticeship.

The rates for workers aged 16-20 remain unchanged.

Thus, the full list of national minimum wage rates is now as follows:

  • £6.19 – the main rate for workers aged 21 and over;
  • £4.98 – the 18-20 age rate;
  • £3.68 – the 16-17 age rate for workers above school leaving age but under 18;
  • £2.65 – the apprentice rate, for apprentices under 19, or 19 or over and in the first year of apprenticeship.

“There is evidence to suggest that good HR practice and people management in SMEs are key factors in strong business performance and can lead to increased productivity.”
