ACS Calls on Retailers to Complete National Living Wage Survey

ACS (the Association of Convenience Stores) has launched the ACS National Living Wage Survey 2018 as part of its evidence gathering process for a submission to the Low Pay Commission.

The Low Pay Commission is consulting on what the rates for the National Living Wage and National Minimum Wage rates should be from April 2019. The consultation will also consider the impact of a potential premium on top of existing wage rates to apply for working hours not guaranteed by an employment contract, following a recommendation from the Taylor Review into Modern Employment Practices.

Wage Rates from 1st April 2018:

  • National Living Wage (workers aged 25 and over) - £7.83
  • National Minimum Wage (workers aged 21 to 24) - £7.38
  • Youth Development Rate (workers aged 18 to 20) - £5.90
  • 16-17 Year Old Rate- £4.20
  • Apprentice Rate - £3.70

The survey asks retailers about how they have responded to the National Living Wage and how increases in wage rates may impact their business in the future. The survey is available for retailers to take part in here, and only takes a few minutes: the deadline for responses is 4th May 2018.
