Are you ready for the Apprenticeship Levy?


The Levy will be payable by all employers in the UK at 0.5% of pay bill and paid through PAYE alongside income tax and National Insurance. Each employer will receive one allowance of £15,000 to offset against their Levy payment. This effectively means that the Levy will only be payable on a pay bill in excess of £3 million per year. However, this does not mean that the Levy will not be payable by small schools.

There will be a connected person’s rule, similar to the Employment Allowance connected persons rule, so employers who operate multiple payrolls will only be able to claim one allowance. This also means that schools who are part of a larger group, such as a Local Authority or Multi-Academy Trust, may still be subject to the levy because the group payroll is in excess of £3 million per year.
