• This is a common misconception – you can pay an apprentice any amount above the age-related apprentice living wage.  So with an existing employee, you should not change their salary at all unless it is a promotion!
  • The only person that needs to know your employee is now an apprentice is HMRC; if they are under 25y you don’t have to pay their Employers’ NIC.
  • Actually, few of our ‘apprentices’ are known as apprentices; they are known as Academy Trainees or simply the Digital Marketer.
