The facts:

  • Any UK employer, in any sector, with a pay bill of more than £3 million per year is liable to pay the levy
  • The levy will be 0.5% of the pay bill, paid through PAYE
  • There is an allowance of £15,000 to offset against levy liability
  • Employers will be paid a top-up of 10% of their levy back by the government.

Once you know how much you will be paying in to the levy, we can help you get the best out of the deal. If your payroll is less than £3 million a year, you can still hire apprentices!

Total Payroll (£):

0.5% levy charge: 75000

Less £15,000 allowance: 60000

10% top up to your Levy charge: 6000

If each apprentice costs £15,000 over 3 years (on average), this equals £5,000 per apprentice per year. With the allowance and top up value of £66,000 you would get value for money by hiring 12 apprentices.
