National Living Wage 2017 – get one step ahead of the rest

14/11/2016 Filed under Payroll

At the beginning of October we released the new National Living Wage and National Minimum Wage rates which you can read about here


Alongside the new rates, it was revealed that the Government have scrapped future autumn reviews and will now review all National Minimum Wage rates in April, alongside the National Living Wage, starting in April 2017.


The Low Pay Commission released the April 2017 National Living Wage rates this week, increasing the minimum rate of pay for employees aged 25 and over from £7.20 to £7.50. National Minimum Wage rates are also set to increse in April 2017.


As our workforce is ageing and the penalties for non-compliance are increasing, it’s never been more important to ensure that your company payroll is safe, up to date, and compliant with all current legislation. Getting ahead of the game in terms of ensuring your employees are paid at the correct rate of pay can boost employee morale, show your organisation is committed to positive changes for the workforce, and can ease the workload, financial impact and headaches of a last minute pay review.
