Apprenticeship Levy


The government announced in the 2015 Summer Budget its new initiative to help fund 3 million new apprenticeships by 2020.

That initiative is the Apprenticeship Levy and it began in April 2017, it changed the way apprenticeships are funded.

The Apprenticeship Levy requires; “All employers operating in the UK, with a pay bill over £3 million each year, to make an investment in apprenticeships”

Employers pay 0.5% of their wage bill to the levy through their PAYE.

It will be applicable to any UK business, in any sector, which has a payroll bill of over £3 million per tax year. It will be deducted monthly and will be taken in any month where your pay bill is above £250,000 and if at the end of the year, your pay bill is less than £3 million, any deductions will be reimbursed.

We’ve developed a Levy calculator to help you see what contributions you may need to make.
