We have committed to ensuring that the Devolved Administrations each receive a fair share of the levy. Discussions with the Devolved Administrations are ongoing and good progress is being made.
The government has confirmed that the apprenticeship levy will be set at a rate of 0.5% of company paybill and every employer will have a £15,000 allowance to offset against their levy liability. In practice, this means only employers with paybills greater than £3million will pay the levy.
The £5 million in revenue is based upon changes to qualifying equipment in the updated Energy Technology List and Water Technology List, as certified by the Office for Budget Responsibility. The Department for Energy and Climate Change and the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs annually review the technologies and products that qualify for inclusion.
