Basics – Sponsor Licence Compliance Duties
We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.
We will cover the basics about Sponsor Licences Compliance duties in this video.
It’s essential that every Sponsor Licence holder remains in full compliance with all the Home Office requirements. It falls on each organisation to know the rules and follow them. The job of the Home Office is to enforce this, with severe consequences for those who fail.
Within each organisation there must be one individual who takes the responsibility for compliance. This person must be an employee or office holder and is given the title of Authorizing Officer. While the Authorizing Officer must have a general understanding of compliance operations, they do not need to be the one to carry out daily compliance activities.
Depending on the size of the organisation, compliance actions may be done by one person, or may fall to an HR department. All reporting to the Home Office is done by the Sponsor Management System, or SMS. At least one person must have level one access to the system.
They must input information and changes about the organisation and all sponsored employees in a timely manner and keep up-to-date on all communications from the Home Office. This person may hold a dual role as the Authorizing Officer in a smaller company, but it is always the Authorizing Officer who has the ultimate responsibility in ensuring that the organisation remains compliant.
It is important to note that the Home Office is very strict in enforcing Immigration Rules & Regulations.

A Y & J Solicitors’ Review
We at GNL has pleasure and privilege of having Yash Dubal , Senior Immigration Lawyer of A Y & J Solicitors at our office to discuss Sponsorship duties and have an open forums on multiple of questions we had on UKVI regulations on sponsoring and employing skilled migrant workers. We learnt great deal of critical aspects of Sponsorship responsibilities. We were able to clarify a long list of doubts/questions we had on regulations and sponsorship duties. Yash is very professional and he attended to every question we had regarding UKVI regulation with great detail and care. His attention to detail, focus, in-depth understanding of regulations and implications are without any parallels available in this industry. We feel privileged to have spent the day with him at our office and are looking forward to have future engagement with him. We recommend A Y & J Solicitors service to anyone who wish to sponsor skilled migrant workers in the UK.
A sigh of relief after Tier 2 sponsor licence restored. The day our Tier 2 sponsor licence was revoked, we had a nightmare as to how we would keep up with our Non EU skilled staff within our business. We were very fortunate to have engaged A Y & J Solicitors as our lawyers to help us with the Tier 2 sponsor licence revocation. Initially, it appeared that the job would be impossible as the Home office had prepared very strong revocation letter but with A Y & J Solicitors expert help we have our Tier 2 sponsor licence back. Our NON-EU skilled work force have been saved. They know their job well and we would recommend them to all employers and businesses who require legal assistance in relation to their NON-EU skilled staff and Tier 2 matters.
I approached A Y & J Solicitors after a visit from the UKBA. The service I received from them was highly efficient and professional. The level of expertise, was a notch above all the other companies I had used. I have had a positive result from our representations to the UKBA allowing me to keep my Non resident labour. I cannot thank them enough for their service. I would highly recommend to anyone who would like a review of their Sponsor Compliance etc.
