From 1 April 2016 the minimum wage rate of £6.70 per hour for workers in the UK aged 25 will increase by 50p to £7.20 per hour.

The government is about to start an advertising campaign on this and has, therefore, published a four-step guide for businesses on the living wage website, asking employers to:

  • Check who is eligible for the wage increase;
  • Take the appropriate payroll action;
  • Let staff know about their new pay rate;
  • Check that staff under 25 are earning at least the right rate of National Minimum Wage.
