Apprenticeship Levy 2017

Since its grand unveiling in the summer of 2016, the upcoming Apprenticeship Levy has caused quite the stir amongst small businesses the country over.

Coming into action on 6 April 2017, the levy will require all businesses with a wage bill of over £3 million to contribute 0.5% of their yearly bill to a pot aimed at funding three million places for apprentices by 2020.

The levy has been largely well received by small businesses, many of whom will benefit from Government-funded apprenticeships without the extra burden of paying into the pot.
