THE DAS ACCOUNT
YOUR DAS ACCOUNT
From January 2020, as part of testing new arrangements during a transition period, the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), is inviting all employers to use the apprenticeship service.
The ESFA encourage all employers to set up an account so they can experience the benefits of the apprenticeship service.
For smaller employers, with a pay bill of less than £3 million, that do not pay the apprenticeship levy, use of the service during the early transition is optional.
Following this transition the intention is, that towards the end of 2020, all apprenticeships will be arranged through the apprenticeship service.
All employers can use the service to tailor apprenticeship training to meet their business needs, filling skills gaps and boosting productivity.
With training provider agreement employers can set permissions to allow training providers to undertake some actions on their behalf. TACS can help you with all aspects of your DAS account.
If your annual pay bill is more than £3 million you will pay the apprenticeship levy.
If you do not pay the apprenticeship levy, you will fund your apprentices in one of two different ways, either using the apprenticeship service or through a contract for funding apprenticeship training held by a training provider.
