The National Living Wage requiring employers to pay at least £7.20 per hour to employees aged 25 or over comes into effect from April 1.

The regulations apply to employees who are already eligible for the National Minimum Wage. The NLW will not apply to those under the age of 25 who will be paid the NMW according to their age, or to those in the first year of an apprenticeship.

The legislation also says that payments to those paid by task or piece of work done should still be paid a fair wage based on the NLW.

A government website on the NLW says that minimum wage calculations must include some payments when the minimum wage is calculated:

  • Income Tax and National Insurance contributions
  • wage advances or loans
  • repayment of wage advances or loans
  • repayment of overpaid wages
  • things the worker paid for that are not needed for the job or paid for voluntarily, eg meals
  • accommodation provided by an employer above the offset rate (£5.35 a day or £37.45 a week)
  • penalty charges for a worker’s misconduct

HM Revenues and Customs is also holding webinars later this month on the NLW and NMW. These will take place on February 18 and 26, and a recording will be made available online.
