Apprenticeship Levy Information

You will pay the apprenticeship levy if you are an employer with a pay bill of more than £3 million each year. For the purposes of the levy, an ‘employer’ is someone who is a secondary contributor, with liability to pay Class 1 secondary National Insurance Contributions (NICs) for their employees.

Funding for SMEs

For companies who pay less than £3 million on their payroll, the new cash contribution from companies will be 10%. The Government will give employers £1,000 if they take on a 16-18 year old, young care leavers and young people with an Education and Health Plan.
