Changes to National Minimum Wage

From 1 October 2013, the National Minimum Wage rate is increasing. This means, from then you’ll need to make sure you pay your employees at least the following hourly rates.

  • 21 and over – £6.31
  • 18 to 20 – £5.03
  • Under 18 – £3.72
  • Apprentice – £2.68*

*This rate is for apprentices under 19 or those in their first year of apprenticeship. If the apprentice is 19 or over and past the first year, they get the rate that applies to their age.
