About the levy

Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a genuine job with an accompanying assessment and skills development programme. 20% of their time is to be spent in off-the-job training. There is no age limit to become an apprentice and courses are available up to Masters level.

The levy

Designed by the government to increase employers’ investment in apprenticeships and workforce development. Introduced in April 2017.

Scope

Companies that have a payroll of over £3million have to pay 0.5% of their UK payroll into a levy fund. Companies that don’t qualify as ‘levy payers’ can still access up to 95% of training and assesment costs for each apprentice hired.

Procedure

The levy is set at a rate of 0.5% (with a £15K allowance) of a businesses total payroll, and it’s collected monthly by PAYE. The government applies a 5% top-up.

Usage

The money on your levy pot can only go towards the training and assessment of the apprenticeship. It cannot be spent on associated costs such as wages.

Use it or lose it

If employers do not spend their levy funds after 24 months, they will be ‘lost’ and made more widely available to non-levy paying companies. Employers can choose to transfer up to 25% of their levy fund for other organisations’ to use.
