New rates for National Minimum Wage

The current NMW rates from 1 October 2015 are:
  • £6.70 for workers 21 and over

  • £5.30 18-20 years

  • £3.87 for 16-17 years, who are above school leaving age but under 18

  • £3.30 for apprentices under 19 or 19 or over who are in the first year of apprenticeship.
It is important to note that these rates, which come into force 1 October 2015, apply to pay reference periods beginning on or after that date.

A compulsory National Living Wage is due to be introduced in April 2016 for all working people aged 25 and over, and will be set at £7.20 per hour. The current National Minimum Wage for those under the age of 25 will continue to apply.
