Corporate Compliance

All UK employers wishing to hire an employee from outside of the European Union must have an Employer Sponsorship Licence under the new points-based system for UK Immigration.


Employers must have an Employer Sponsorship Licence to employ workers from outside the Union and companies without an employer sponsorship licence will be unable to bring in new non-EU migrant workers to the UK or extend the work permits of current employees.


The Employer Sponsorship Licence Application Process


There are a number of stages in the application process: initial verification of eligibility;  review of current company policies and practices;  confirming company policies comply with UK immigration legislation; collecting necessary application documents; lodging the application; and finally approval notification.


Immigration Advice Centre can assist in the entire application process for your company and provide post-approval support. Employers are advised to contact us to arrange for us to come and visit for a detailed consulation and to commence the application process.


Immigration Advice Centre specialists will then request more information, analyse the company’s policies and practices and recommend any necessary changes that might need to be made. Our specialists will also collect the required legal, financial and employee documents to accompany your Employer Sponsorship Licence application. After all the documents are collected the licensing specialist will review and lodge the Employer Sponsorship Licence application on your behalf.


Following the receipt of these documents, the company will then receive a compliance visit from the UK Border Agency, who will verify whether or not to grant the Employer Sponsorship Licence.


Once your application has been granted you will receive notification from your licensing specialist and receive information about the post-application process and support that Immigration Advice Centre can provide. We are also happy to provide you with ongoing legal advice and support so that you can be sure you are complying with UKBA requirements and that your staff are aware of their rights and responsibilities whilst living and working in the UK.
