Drummond Laurie Chartered Accountantsagri2The Scottish Agricultural Wages Board (SAWB) recently decided to change the effective date of annual changes to the Scottish Agricultural Minimum Wage Rate from the 1st of October, to bring it into line with the new National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage changes. This means that no changes will be made agri1until 1st April 2017. 

Although no changes have been made this year, it is important that employers ensure their agricultural employees are not paid less than the National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage.
