Do You Have To Pay Tax On An Apprenticeship

Apprentices pay income tax in the same manner as everyone else: if you earn more than £12,500 per year, you must pay your share, so unfortunately you do have to pay tax on an apprenticeship.

If you earn more than £166 per week (£8,632 per year), you must also pay National Insurance at a rate of 12% of your wages. .

But don’t worry; both are subtracted from your earnings before you see them. As a consequence, you’ll never feel as if you’re paying anything – you’ll just be contributing to the greater good.

Unlike students, you will not be exempt from council tax, but if you reside in a household with just apprentices and trainees, you may be eligible for a 50% discount.
