National Living Wage: April 2024

As the April 1st date for the revised National Living Wage (NLW) and National Minimum Wage (NMW) approaches, Intelligent Payroll is excited to partner with you in navigating this important shift. While these adjustments represent a significant change in the UK payroll landscape, we believe they present valuable opportunities to optimise your operations and cultivate a more engaged workforce.

Key Updates to Note:

  • National Living Wage (21+): Increases by 9.8% to £11.44 per hour.
  • National Minimum Wage (18-20): Rises by 14.8% to £8.60 per hour.
  • National Minimum Wage (16-17 & Apprentices): Increases by 21.2% to £6.40 per hour.

Preparing for Smooth Implementation:

  • Employee Data Accuracy: We encourage verifying employee ages and pay rates to ensure everyone receives the appropriate wage adjustment.
  • Effective Date: Remember, these changes apply to pay periods commencing on or after April 1st, 2024.
  • Transparent Communication: Openly informing your team about the increased rates and their rationale demonstrates transparency and promotes employee understanding.
  • Process Optimisation: Consider opportunities to streamline your payroll processes through automation or other efficiency measures. Intelligent Payroll is your trusted partner in optimising your systems.
