Wages from 6 April 2014

Director’s Salary

The new rates of personal allowances and National Insurance come into effect on 6 April 2014. This means that the salary for many directors of small limited companies needs to be re-evaluated to ensure that it is tax efficient.

The change means you can increase your current monthly wage to £663 per month, or weekly wage to £153 per week. This would result in no Tax or National Insurance deductions (based on a standard 100L tax code) while still obtaining a National Insurance credit. 

National Minimum Wage

Just a reminder that the National Minimum Wage rates came into force from 1 October 2013 and will still apply from 6 April 2014 for employees:

  • 6.31 – Aged 21 and over
  • £5.03 – Aged 18-20 rate
  • £3.72 – Aged 16-17 rate for workers above compulsory school leaving age
  • £2.68 – The apprentice rate, for apprentices under 19, or 19 or over and in the first year of their apprenticeship
