Paying the levy
If your paybill is £3 million or more, you have to pay the levy.
The levy amount payable is calculated at 0.5% of your pay bill. All employers get a £15,000 allowance to offset against the amount they have to pay.
Using your apprenticeship funding
Any employer paying into the levy will see their levy payments go into the online Apprenticeship Service, which will enable you to manage your apprenticeship funding and delivery through a virtual account. You'll be able to see how much is in your account and allocate payments to providers of government-approved apprenticeships.
You can work with us to agree on an apprenticeship programme that fits your company and employer needs. The levy can be used to pay for the End Point Assessments, but not the registration or certification of non-mandatory qualifications.
