The process of applying for and then maintaining a sponsor license is an ongoing commitment for your business. You will need to be aware of the rules and regulations surrounding the sponsorship licence and sponsoring of an international worker. There are numerous duties that a sponsor licence holder needs to discharge of. By engaging RVS Solicitors, you can focus on running your organisation while we take care Sponsor Licence matters on your behalf.
We understand that your ability to recruit talent from outside of the European Economic Area (EEA) is vital to ensure your business can operate and expand. And because Brexit is placing pressure on the ease of recruiting staff from the EU, the ability to sponsor non-EEA nationals has never been more valuable to British businesses.
Business sectors including finance, tech (and fintech), education, engineering, construction, hospitality, and retail are all heavily reliant on the recruitment of skilled staff. As such, it is essential that sponsoring employers not only have the necessary Tier 2 Sponsor License, but they maintain it. Any interruption in the ability to recruit talent due to non-compliance with Sponsor Licence duties and responsibilities can have significant implications for day to day business operations.
To maintain compliance, Sponsor Licence holders must meet strict Home Office obligations. A breach of compliance can result in your Sponsor Licence being downgraded, suspended and/or revoked. In addition, organisations can face large fines and prison sentences may be handed down to owners and those in senior positions. This is why it is absolutely vital for your business to remain on top of its sponsorship duties, as well as relevant immigration rules.
