Apprenticeship Levy

Changes to the system and how it could affect your business

There have been a number of recent Government reforms to the Apprenticeship programme, which could have an impact on your business.

A key element of the reforms was the introduction of a new tax in the UK, the Apprenticeship Levy.  The Levy was created to help the government achieve its original objective of 3 million Apprenticeship starts by the year 2020.

Not all businesses will pay the Levy, in fact only some 2% of all businesses in the UK will have to pay it.  However, if your business is not required to pay the Levy but you are still looking to recruit new Apprentices, or enrol some of your existing members of staff to the Apprenticeship programme, there are changes you will need to be aware of.
