Act Now

Employers / non levy payers – Act now and save 10%

Act now, your business will have to contribute 10% of the full value of Apprenticeship funding for each apprentice you train.

As you may know, the new Apprenticeship Levy begins in May 2017.  Employers with an annual payroll of £3m or more will pay a levy equal to 0.5% of that payroll bill each year.

If you do not pay the levy (i.e. you have a payroll of less than £3m), the Government have introduced a new ruling from 1st April 2017.  The ruling will mean that your business will have to contribute 10% of the full value of Apprenticeship funding for each Apprentice you train. This could be as much as £2,700.

Act now!

If you act now and take on an Apprentice before April 2017, the Apprentice's training will be funded, which, in many cases (for example if they are 16-18), means that you won’t have to pay anything towards the training.
