The National Minimum Wage Increase

The national minimum wage sets minimum hourly rates that employers must pay their workers. It covers almost all workers in the UK. There are three aged based rates and an apprentice rate. This guide provides a basic overview of the national minimum wage and explains the role of HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in enforcing it.

Important updates and changes
The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills has announced the national minimum wage rates from 1 October 2013:

  • the main adult rate (for workers 21 and over) will increase by 12p to £6.31 an hour
  • the rate for 18-20 year olds will increase by 5p to £5.03 an hour
  • the rate for 16-17 year olds will increase by 4p to £3.72 an hour
