Whether you are applying for your first sponsor license, you are struggling to fulfil your duties as a sponsor, or you have already been downgraded or had your license revoked, let us take control of the matter for you.
For employers reliant on the sponsorship of long and short-term workers from outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), maintaining compliance with their Sponsor Licence duties and responsibilities is vital. Due to the pressure that leaving the European Union (EU) is placing on the recruitment of staff within the EU, the ability to seek non-EEA talent has never been more important for British businesses.
UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) are extremely vigilant when it comes to ensuring companies with Tier 2 and 5 Sponsor Licenses remain compliant. Even the smallest transgression can have devastating consequences, hence it pays to be several steps ahead of immigration officials. If a Sponsor License is revoked, not only does it prevent an organisation from recruiting valuable talent from outside of the EEA and Switzerland, but it can lead to large fines and potential prison sentences for owners and those in senior positions.
Thankfully there is a great deal that can be done to mitigate the risk of any breach of Sponsor License holder compliance, and with the help of RVS Solicitors, you will be able to rest assured that no matter what UKVI do, your organisation will be beyond the minimum compliance requirements.
