Many haulage operators are unaware they will have to pay a new tax, warns RHA

The Road Haulage Association is concerned that many transport companies are still unaware that they will be required to pay a new tax from April 2017, called the apprenticeship levy.

“It has become clear that while most firms know that there are new industry apprenticeships, many are unaware that at the same time they are going to be taxed,” said  RHA deputy policy director – employment and skills, Colin Snape..

“The apprenticeship levy is not only relevant to very large companies. All firms with total gross payroll costs exceeding £3 million at consolidated group level will have to pay the levy,” Snape continued.
