Do You Have To Pay Tax On An Apprenticeship

Apprentices pay income tax like everyone else: if you earn more than £12,570 per year, you must pay your share, so, unfortunately, you do have to pay tax on an apprenticeship. In addition, if you earn more than £190 per week, you must also pay National Insurance. 

But don’t worry; both are subtracted from your earnings before seeing them. Consequently, you’ll never feel like you’re paying anything – you’ll contribute 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.
