New Pension rules

New compulsory pension rules take effect for the largest companies.  Smaller companies will gradually be brought into the scheme between 2014 and 2017.



New national minimum wage rates will take effect from 1 October:

  • The standard adult rate (workers aged 21 and over) will rise to £6.19 per hour;
  • The development rate (workers aged between 18 and 20) will remain at £4.98 per hour;
  • The young workers rate (workers aged under 18 but above the compulsory school age; who are not apprentices) will remain at £3.68 per hour;
  • The rate for apprentices will rise to £2.65 per hour;
  • The accommodation offset will rise to £4.82 per day (up 1.9% from £4.73).
