National living wage increases nearly 5%

As announced by Philip Hammond in the UK Parliament Autumn Budget in 2018, the National Minimum Wage is increasing in April 2019 and amounts to an annual increase of about £690 for a full-time worker.

From April 2019, minimum pay rates will increase.

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