This guide will help explain how the Apprenticeship levy will affect your business and
how you can turn a mandatory payroll tax into a business advantage for your staff and
To help fund new Apprenticeships, the government has announced a new funding pot
called the Apprenticeship Levy. This will replace all taxpayer funding of Apprenticeships
from April 2017. If you are an employer with a payroll of more than £3 million per year
then you will be required to pay into the Apprenticeship Levy.
The levy raises many questions that employers need answers to; who pays? How much? How is it collected? What can it be used for? How do I claim it back?
These are just some of the questions being asked. This guide aims to answer your
questions and point you in the right direction for further information. We’ve set out the
facts and highlighted the genuine benefits of the levy as we see them. It doesn’t have to
be complex; it’s your levy, and we’re here to help you make the most of it.
