Registration for Levy Paying Employers is now open
The government’s online system that employers will use to manage apprenticeship funds is now open for registration to all companies that will (or expect to) pay the new apprenticeship levy.
The link to the Apprenticeship Service (previously referred to as the Digital Apprenticeship Service) for registration and full details can be found here – apprenticeship-funds
All employers whose pay bill is expected to be around or in excess of three million pounds per annum must register for an account. Employers will need to have details of their Government Gateway login details for their PAYE schemes to complete the registration.
Once registered the account will allow employers to manage the financial side of their apprenticeship system, estimate their apprenticeship spend and recruit apprentices through their preferred training provider (from the approved Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers due to be published in March 2017).
