In the 2015 Autumn Statement, George Osborne announced a new apprenticeship levy on employers to help fund employer apprenticeship schemes and reach the target of delivering three million apprenticeships by 2020. The levy has been introduced at a rate of 0.5 per cent of an employer’s payroll. All employers will receive an allowance of £15,000 to offset against payment of the levy. This effectively means that the levy will only be payable on payroll in excess of £3 million per year.
