The Chancellor, Philip Hammond, has announced the new increased rates of National Living Wage (NLW) and National Minimum Wage (NMW). The increases will affect 2.4 million workers.

From April 2019, minimum pay rates will increase as below.

  • NLW (workers aged 25+) — from £7.83 to £8.21 per hour.

  • NMW rates:

    • workers aged 21–24 — from £7.38 to £7.70 per hour

    • workers aged 18–20 — from £5.90 to £6.15 per hour

    • workers aged 16–18 — from £4.20 to £4.35 per hour

    • apprentice rate — from £3.70 to £3.90 per hour.

The accommodation offset rate will rise to £7.55.

A full-time worker aged 25 and over on the NLW will therefore receive an annual pay increase of £690.
