What is the Levy & how it will affect you
The apprenticeship levy has been created as a key way to fund the Government’s commitment, and to encourage employers to increase their uptake of apprentices as a way of meeting their current and future skills needs.
How do I access my Levy fund?
Funds will be accessed through a new Digital Apprenticeship Service Account. As an Employer you will need to register to create an account and link it to your PAYE schemes. The first levy funds will be collected in April 2017 and you will be able to see funds appear in your digital account monthly.

You will be able to use this to pay for training and assessment for apprentices in England from 1st May 2017 onwards. When you agree to buy apprenticeship training from EQL Solutions, once the apprenticeship has started, monthly payments will automatically be taken from your account and sent to EQL.
