What is an apprenticeship levy declaration?

The apprenticeship levy declaration is the process of declaring the amount of apprenticeship levy owed by your company to HMRC. This is reported through the PAYE process like National Insurance or Income Tax.

Employers must declare the apprenticeship levy each month from the start of the financial year. Employers start declaring apprenticeship levy when:

  • Annual payroll from previous year was over £3 million
  • Annual payroll for this year will be over £3 million

Always keep record of your apprenticeship levy declaration for at least three years.
