The apprenticeship levy is a government initiative to fund apprenticeships. It was introduced in May 2017 and is only payable by employers with a total wage bill of more than £3 million / year.

The Facts

• Any employers, in any sector, with a payroll bill of more than £3 million per year is liable to pay the levy;

• Apprenticeship levy is set at a rate of 0.5% of your total payroll;

• Employers will not pay the first £15,000 of the levy;

• It will be collected monthly based on ‘live’ HMRC payroll data;

• You have 24 months from the date of collection to spend the levy on apprenticeship training.
