The ‘national living wage’ of £7.20 per hour is the minimum wage that must be paid to workers aged 25 or over. The other categories of worker still exist, and these are currently their prescribed rates.
- workers for whom the apprenticeship rate applies – minimum wage: £3.30/hour;
- workers under 18: £3.87/hour;
- workers under 21: £5.30/hour;
- workers under 25: £6.70/hour.
These rates increase each April, so we would suggest you keep abreast of developments. We will endeavour to keep you updated, but the Government also publishes the rates here.

It’s a fact that businesses are not all the same and each has its own set of concerns, aspirations and priorities. One size does not fit all and we’re here to ensure that you don’t need to compromise your business model or your ambitions where this can be legally avoided as you bring in the National Living Wage.
