We are committed to ensuring all employers pay their workers correctly. As part of our enforcement strategy, HMRC target workers and employers with information and advice.

In April 2018 we launched a £1.48 million campaign to raise awareness of NMW rules, particularly in sectors with a high risk of non-compliance.

Full guidance setting out the difference between the National Minimum Wage and the National Living Wage is available on www.gov.uk and within the associated guidance document entitled ‘Calculating the National Minimum Wage’.
