The apprenticeship levy was introduced on 1 April 2017 and is a levy on UK employers to fund new apprenticeships. It is calculated based on 0.5% of basic salary. X5 calculates the levy by calculating a higher NI amount (through an NI rates file). Please select the file applicable to your costing:
- The NI rates file dated 30/9/21 should be used for all funders that have confirmed they will not pay the levy (see list below)
- The NI rates file dated 1/10/21 should be used for all other funders.
