Minimum wage update

As the festival and event season is upon us, it is important that we all pay our teams the statutory living wage. The rates were increased by the Government with effect from April 2019. The minimum wage that you should be paying your team are shown below.


Age 2019 rate Increase
Over 25 £8.21 4.90%
21 to 24 £7.70 4.30%
18 to 20 £6.15 4.20%
16 to 17 £4.35 3.60%


You may wish to pay more than the minimum living wage in order to include holiday pay in the hourly rate which you pay to your team – contact The Catering Accounting Co. for further details.
