Factsheet: The apprenticeship levy - how it will work

10 / 01 / 2017

This factsheet reflects the latest guidance on the apprenticeship levy, which was published in December 2016. It explains how the levy will work in practice and will help you understand what this policy means for your organisation. 

It sets out key information and answers some of the main questions raised by employers, including:

  • what will be counted in the pay bill 
  • how the levy will be paid
  • what allowances are available to employers
  • how the funds can be used to pay for apprenticeship training and assessments.

Further information about the apprenticeship levy is available on our apprenticeship policy web pages.
