National Minimum and National Living Wage
The government is increasing the National Minimum and National Living Wage rates on 1 April 2018; which includes the largest increases in a decade for the rates that apply to 18-20 and 21-24 year olds.
As the minimum wage increases, more Salon Owners than ever will be directly affected, including those who currently pay above the minimum. Remember that the minimum wage depends on both your employees age and whether they’re an apprentice.
It’s worth adding the birthdays of your employees to your calendars so you capture any moving between age bands. And also remember to update their increased pay when submitting your payroll to us each month.
