What is “apprenticeship tax”?

Apprenticeship tax is a tax paid by all companies in France. It allows businesses to finance the development of professional training programs. Employers may allocate this tax directly to the school, program or establishment they wish to support.

NB : The apprenticeship tax rate is 0.68 % of gross salaries paid during the previous year (0.44% in the Alsace-Moselle region).
