The Apprenticeship Levy and You
We’re already helping employers just like you to understand their Levy payments and how they can maximise their return with bespoke Apprenticeship programmes.
What, Why and How?
The government is committed to developing vocational skills to increase the quantity and quality of Apprenticeships as well as committing to an additional 3 million Apprenticeship starts in England by 2020. The Levy will aim to deliver new Apprenticeships and support quality training by putting employers at the centre of the system. From April 6th 2017, employers with a pay bill of over £3 million that have been paying their monthly Levy pay bill, will now be able to access funds to pay for Apprenticeship training as of May 2017.
The Apprenticeship Levy is a tax placed on large UK employers. These employers will be required to pay 0.5% of their annual payroll into the Levy and these funds will be used to pay for new Apprenticeships.
It’s pretty simple really, just think of the Levy as an investment – not a tax. By implementing a successful Apprenticeship programme you will be able to develop the skills of your workforce and drive business improvement.
