Apprenticeships levy: employer owned apprenticeships training

21 August 2015

As announced in the Summer Budget, the government are introducing an apprenticeship levy and as such have published a consultation seeking views on how the levy should be paid and implemented.

The consultation proposes that the levy be calculated on the basis of employee earnings and for employers to pay the levy through their PAYE return to HMRC. It also asks:

  • how the levy should work for employers who operate across the whole of the UK
  • how to make sure that employers paying the levy have the opportunity to get more out than they put in
  • how best to give employers control of apprenticeships.

This consultation will run until 2 October 2015.
