Employer Funding

How the Levy fund can help you recruit new talent into your business.

Apprenticeships deliver the whole package of on-the-job training and occupationally-relevant qualifications that develop the skills, knowledge, and expertise of your employees.

Levy Payer

Companies with an annual wage bill of over £3 million will have to pay an apprenticeship levy of 0.5% directly to HMRC through the PAYE process. The amount you have available to spend is calculated on a monthly basis as follows:

Your levy is 0.5% of your gross annual payroll, less a £15,000 allowance. The balance is then divided by 12 and rounded down to the nearest pound. This gives a monthly levy payment which is then multiplied by the % of your employees living in England. The government tops that up by 10%, which gives you the final monthly amount. Employers can use this allowance for apprenticeship training through an approved training provider such as Cambridge Regional College.

Co-funded

Employers who are not eligible to pay the apprenticeship levy will have to pay 5% towards the cost of apprenticeship training. This can be paid in three ways:

• Upfront payment
• Instalments over the first three months
• Or, if over £900, instalment payments across 12 months

Full-funded

This applies to companies with less than 50 employees taking a 16-18-year-old apprentice. Apprenticeship training is fully funded for these companies which means there is no fee to you as an employer.
