APPRENTICESHIP LEVY DETAILS REVEALEDBack

DepBusIt is positive to see that the government has released further details about the apprenticeship levy, but the NFDA is still concerned at the short timescale of the implementation.

The government has announced that employers paying the levy, which will apply to businesses with payroll bills of over £3 million, are expected to register for the digital service by January 2017. Further details about funding, government support, additional support for 16- to 18-year-olds, English and maths payments and eligibility rules will be published in October 2016.

It is encouraging to see that the government shows support for training and development of young people, particularly in a period where skill shortages might represent an issue.

We are also pleased to see that smaller businesses have been taken into consideration and will not have to pay the levy.

Considering the extremely short timescale, we are disappointed to see that this has not been delayed. We will continue to lobby government to ensure changes are introduced smoothly and businesses can cope.
