All UK businesses that have an annual pay bill in excess of £3 million will have to pay 0.5% of their bill as an additional tax through PAYE
All UK employers who have an annual pay bill in excess of £3 million will be liable to pay the levy, regardless of whether they currently employ apprentices or not.
You will have a digital account on a new online portal at the Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS). Each time the employer pays the apprenticeship levy, their account will be credited with the amount paid.
Employers will then be able to exchange funds in their account for vouchers that can be used to invest in apprenticeship training by a provider of their choice.
Funds within the account that are unused for a period longer than 24 months will be removed from the digital account.
Once all of your digital vouchers have been spent, you can still take on extra apprentices. The government will fund 90% of the cost of the apprentice, you will have to contribute just 10%.
If you have an annual pay bill of less than £3 million, you will not be liable to pay the apprenticeship levy.
