New company guides issued ahead of Levy introduction

Two new guides have been released by the authorities to help companies understand the Apprentice Levy

Firstly, this morning saw the publication of a detailed and specific guide for companies that may be affected by the Apprentice Levy, published by HMRC . It can be found here and it lays out who is affected, how, and what to do to get ready for the Levy’s introduction in April 2017. It has sections that include:

  1. When you need to pay it
  2. How much you need to pay
  3. Report how much you owe
  4. How to pay
  5. Apprenticeship Levy for schools
  6. Contacts

Meanwhile, a new YouTube video has gone up to guide companies through the process of using the new Digital Apprenticeship Service, which is aimed at giving employers the chance to use the online service to onboard and manage their new apprentices.

The video walks users through the funding setup, registering for an account, finding training providers as well as taking a detailed look at the Digital Apprenticeship portal and how employers will be able to use it going forward.
