* 13. Current policies and BREXIT negotiations all point to it being more difficult to recruit internationally and greater emphasis on growing the UK talent base. In particular, the Apprenticeship Levy starts in the new tax year and companies with a payroll of over £3m will pay 0.5% to the Apprenticeship Levy. In relation to this, NMI has been active in starting the UK Electronics Skills Foundation and Graduate Apprenticeship Standard on Embedded Electronic Systems Design. We are continually focusing on this and intend to take things further.
