GP Strategies offers a full range of services to guide and support our levy paying employers through the minefield of processes and procedures.

The apprenticeship levy is paid by employers with a wage bill of more than £3 million each year, at a rate of 0.5%. It is payable through Pay As You Earn (PAYE) alongside income tax and National Insurance. Employers have an allowance of £15,000 per year to offset against their levy payment.

If you are a levy paying employer, we will work closely with you to maximise your return in levy investment by developing an apprenticeship levy strategy that aligns with your organisation’s L&D strategy.

You will have a dedicated levy account manager who will support you in areas such as recruitment, the design of bespoke training programmes and the administration of government funding.
