The apprenticeship levy is an investment tax paid to the Government through PAYE by businesses to support the creation of three million apprenticeships by 2020.

The amount each business pays depends upon their overall annual salary bill. Their levy fund can then be used to
recruit new apprentices or upskill existing employees.

An apprentice is someone, of any age, that works and carries out apprenticeship training towards a qualification to learn new skills.
