Does my company need a sponsor licence?

Every UK based company, looking to employ EU / non-EU nationals, must obtain a sponsor licence. It allows your business to issue a certificate of sponsorship to your new (or existing) employee, permitting them to work for your business in an eligible role.

Your company can hire from outside the UK or from within the UK. If you are looking to hire someone from within the UK, you can do so if the individual is currently on a temporary visa or if they work for another sponsoring company. You can also sponsor an international student studying in the UK; this allows your business to broaden its talent pool with access to global markets.

If you want to improve your diversity, equality and inclusion (DE&I) credentials, sponsoring an employee is a fantastic way to achieve this, as you access a much broader set of skills from different backgrounds.

Can we help you manage your licence?

Absolutely, it's what we do.

Whilst having a sponsor licence has advantages, there are onerous compliance duties for your business. It is important to understand these duties to ensure ongoing compliance with the rules and regulations. This includes taking reasonable steps to prevent illegal working, maintaining accurate and up-to-date records, reporting any changes to the sponsored worker’s employment status, and cooperating with the Home Office during compliance visits.

We understand running a business is hard enough, so our team of expert solicitors will be on hand to support and advise you on how to fully comply with your sponsor licence duties. We can provide training and conduct mock audits so no stone is unturned and your business can do what its best at doing.
