Apprenticeship Levy - Employer Engagement Consultation

Closed 3 Jan 2017

Opened 29 Nov 2016


The introduction of a UK wide Apprenticeship Levy was first announced by the Chancellor in the summer 2015 Budget Statement.

The collection of the Levy from all employers with a pay bill in excess of £3 million per annum is a matter for the UK Government and will apply across the UK in both public and private sectors. Those organisations with an annual pay bill of more than £3 million per annum will be net contributors to the Levy funds. Those organisations with an annual pay bill of £3 million per annum or less will not contribute to the Levy funds.     

Why We Are Consulting

The Apprenticeship Levy will be introduced across the UK in April 2017 and the Department for the Economy want to take your views on the potential implications of the Apprenticeship Levy in Northern Ireland
