National Minimum Wage calculator and guidance

'WAGE' written in white text with a blue background

Almost all workers are entitled to the National Minimum Wage (NMW) or National Living Wage (NLW). The rate payable will depend on the age of your workers.

Read this guidance and use this tool on the GOV.UK website to help you work out whether you are paying a worker the correct rate of NMW and/or whether arrears are due to a particular worker in respect of a specified pay reference period.
