Update from HMRC on Apprentices
The government is now making a number of changes to apprenticeships in England, including how they are funded. Since 6 April 2017 employers operating in the UK, with an annual pay bill of more than £3 million (and some connected companies and charities with pay bills less than this amount) have started paying the apprenticeship levy.
If you are a levy-paying employer you can access funds raised by the levy. If you are a non-levy paying employer, 90% of your apprenticeship training and assessment costs in England will be paid for by the government.
• Think about how you could use apprenticeships in your organisation
• There is an updated guide for employers on how you will pay the levy
• If you are a levy paying employer, you can register for the apprenticeship service to manage your apprenticeship programme.
