National Living Wage – Increase from April 2021

To offer the best value to our clients Dart-Services are proud to be partners with:

The Chancellor, Rishi Sunak has confirmed a small increase in the National Living Wage rates from April 2021.

Employers will need to diarise these increases otherwise they may break their obligation to pay these rates and risk penalties.

The increase in the NLW will mean that low-paid workers’ incomes rise broadly in line with predicted wage growth; and modestly ahead of projected increases in prices, meaning low-paid workers’ living standards should be protected. Commissioners do not believe the increase presents a significant additional risk to employment prospects, beyond the already challenging outlook.

The Low Paid Commission’s (LPC) recommendations comprised:

  Rate from April 2020 Rate from April 2021 Increase
National Living Wage £8.72 £8.91 2.2%
21-22 Year Old Rate £8.20 £8.36 2.0%
18-20 Year Old Rate £6.45 £6.56 1.7%
16-17 Year Old Rate £4.55 £4.62 1.5%
Apprentice Rate £4.15 £4.30 3.6%
Accommodation Offset £8.20 £8.36 2.0%
