New Apprenticeship Levy information from Skills for Care

From May 2017, Apprenticeships will be funded differently. The main change will be the introduction of an Apprenticeship levy.

If you are UK employer who pays over £3 million in payroll per year you are automatically classed as a ‘levy paying employer’. This means that you will pay a levy or 'tax' of 0.5% of payroll over £3 million on a monthly basis.
