Apple has revealed its gender pay gap figures, showing that on some measures it actually pays women better than men.

UKFast has a 50/50 gender split within its board of directors and has more women than men in senior management roles.

Companies that miss the deadline could face legal action including court orders and fines, but only after being given more than a month's grace period.

Of the around 9,000 firms with more than 250 staff required to report by midnight, the BBC notes 8,870 had done so as of 7.00am.

The Independent's sister title The Evening Standard revealed it had a gender pay gap of 12.8 per cent in favour of men yesterday.

Of firms now known to have the most acute gender pay gaps, Ryanair is the best known.

Of the data that has already been published, it is highlighted that 78% of the companies pay more to men, while 13% pay more to women.

It says the disparity is because of the number of United Kingdom pilots it employs - 546 are male and only eight are female.

Earlier today, Music Business Week revealed that the average gender pay gap across the three major labels in the UK - Universal Music UK, Sony Music UK, Warner Music UK - was over 30%. This results in women earning on average £1.13 for every £1 men earn.

"Shining a light on where women are being held back means employers can begin to take action", a UK Home Office spokesperson said.

Figures vary greatly from company to company, and the gap fluctuates depending on whether mean or median is used to calculate it. The FA said the fact that most of its high-profile coaches were men had a "significant impact" on the figures.

She added: "Flexible working is still not as widely available as it needs to be, together with pay structures which do not disadvantage part time workers - women or men".

In the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) women are paid an average of 31% less than men across the organisation - meaning for every £1 earned by a man, women earn 69p.

As far as we can establish, the company with the largest pay gap in Wales is CH4 Gas Utility and Maintenance Services in Cardiff at 40.7% followed by Bridgend College at 36.8%.

Has the pay gap reporting process uncovered any discriminatory practices in relation to pay, which could be a legal equal pay issue?

Universal has reported a median pay gap of 16.7% and a mean pay gap of 29.8%. The median gap compares the pay of individual male and female employees at the middle of the scales, which helps exclude outliers who are very highly paid. The difference, known as the gender pay gap, is created by an imbalance in representation - specifically, a higher proportion of men in senior roles.

The broadcaster said some men will take substantial pay cuts, while some women and other men would see their salaries increased.

It said it aimed to recruit an increasing number of women in graduate and experienced roles.
