What is a levy transfer?

Levy gifting allows a levy paying company to transfer up to 25% of unspent levy funds to another organisation to cover the cost of apprenticeships, rather than return the unspent funds back to HMRC.

By doing this, you can use unspent funds to support other businesses in your chosen sector to ‘sponsor’ upskilling or help to recruit new apprentices. 

Within your Apprenticeship Service Account you can create a ‘transfer pledge’ and choose to transfer funds by:

  • Location
  • Sector
  • Job role 
  • Qualification level 

By partnering with Total People, we can work with you to connect you with opportunities that meet your requirements.

Apprenticeship funding

You can gift up to 25% of your Levy fund to support small businesses to hire apprentices. It’s a win-win situation - you can ensure your unspent Levy funds go to good use, and support business growth in SMEs at the same time. As you can’t carry over any unspent allowance into the following year, you can put your Levy to good use before the funds expire.
