NMDA COMMENTS ON APPRENTICESHIP LEVY ANNOUNCEMENT

Published 12/08/2016 00:00:00 in Press Releases

“The National Motorcycle Dealers Association (NMDA) is encouraged to see that the government has released further details about the apprenticeship levy today”, comments Sue Robinson, Director of the NMDA which represents motorcycle retailers across the UK.

The government has announced that employers paying the levy, which will apply to businesses with payroll bills of over £3 million, are expected to register for the digital service by January 2017.

Robinson continued, “It is encouraging to see that the government is continuing to show support for training and development of young people, particularly in a period where skill shortages might represent an issue.

“This will be especially beneficial for smaller motorcycle businesses with fewer than 50 employees who will have 100% of training costs paid for by government for a 16- to 18-year-old apprentice.

“We will continue to lobby government to ensure changes are introduced smoothly and businesses can cope.”
