What is the apprenticeship tax?

What is the apprenticeship tax?


It is composed of two parts:

  • 87% is collected to finance apprenticeships
  • 13% is paid towards the development of training courses such as the CAWEB master’s.


By directing your apprentissage tax to the CAWEB master’s degree, your company can directly contribute to the success of our students.


This funding allows us to buy multimedia equipment and the latest versions of software for all our students, as well as to fund the salaries of our external instructors.

How can I pay my company’s apprenticeship tax directly to CAWEB?

You can now pay the 13% of the apprenticeship tax earmarked for training courses directly to an authorized educational establishment, without going through an intermediary, as long as you pay it before June 1st of the year that it is due.

The University of Strasbourg has set up an application that allows companies to declare their intention to contribute their apprenticeship tax to the university and to pay it entirely online. This tool is available at:
