The ATW cap (maximum award / budget) is worked out as 2 x the National Average Salary (NAS). If the National Average Salary goes up, then the ATW cap goes up too.
The old cap from April 2018 to March 2019 was £57,200.
The new cap from April 2019 to March 2020 is £59,200. (This is an increase of just under 3.5%)
