Business Immigration – Points Based System and Compliance

With the strengthening of UK Immigration legislation it is more important than ever for employers to remain fully compliant with UK Immigration regulations.

Ensuring internal systems and processes are in place to comply with sponsor duties and illegal working laws are vital to avoid the risks associated with employing migrant workers under the Points Based System.

The Home Office carries out audits, and employers can lose their licence if a company is not compliant with sponsor duties. In addition, there are financial penalties if a company is found to be employing someone illegally.

Employers must ensure sponsor licences are in place before employing any national from outside the EU, and the licensing process can take up to 6 weeks. Planning ahead can avoid delays in bringing migrant workers to the UK for assignments, or extending existing work permission.
