The Apprenticeship Levy

Making it pay

The Apprenticeship Levy is designed to increase the quality and quantity of apprenticeship programmes in the UK, increasing access to jobs and reducing the skills gap.

The Levy impacts businesses with an annual payroll bill of over £3m and encourages employers to use apprenticeship programmes, to either employ new staff or to upskill an existing workforce.

Investing your Apprenticeship Levy for maximum return is a challenge for many businesses.

How much is your levy?

Annual levy payment:

How it Works

  1. HMRC collects the levy payment monthly, through PAYE
  2. Funds in Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS) account. The government top up your levy pot with a further 10% of funding
  3. Member of staff joins apprenticeship programme
  4. Apprentices receive their training and assessments
  5. Monthly deductions from DAS account
  6. Any unused levy funds expire after 24 months
