The Living Wage Is Coming Into Effect - What you need to know
The Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne in July 2015 announced that the UK Government will introduce a compulsory minimum wage premium for all staff over 25 years of age, and referred to it as the ‘national living wage'.
This rate will commence in April 2016. In order to help small businesses deal with this increase to the national minimum wage, or living wage, they will have their national insurance bill reduced.
Initially, the National Living Wage has been set at £7.20 an hour, a reasonable increase on the £6.70 National Minimum Wage businesses are currently paying to their employees aged over 25. This will then be further increased to £9 per hour nationwide by 2020.
