National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage Alert

 If you pay any of your staff the National Minimum Wage (NMW) and/ or National Living Wage (NLW), you need to be aware that as of 1st April 2024 new rates will apply.

 Please note from 1 April 2024, workers aged 21 and over will be entitled to the National Living wage.

         •       £8.60 – Age 18 to 20 rate

         •       £6.40 – Under 18 rate

         •       £6.40 -  The apprentice rate, for apprentices under 19, or 19 or over and in the first year of their apprenticeship
