    Sponsorship Licence Compliance Duties for Sponsor Licence Holders

    We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.

    I will talk about Sponsor Licence compliance Duties in this video.

    As a Sponsor Licence holder you are responsible for complying with your sponsorship duties as set out by the Home Office.

    If any rules/regulations change (which is likely) it is your responsibility to keep yourself informed, and act on any changes as needed.

    Your sponsorship Licence duties include but not limited to reporting and record keeping.

    You should report within a specific deadline significant changes within the company that includes but not limited to ‘change of address’, ‘merger/acquisition’, ‘TUPE transfer’.

    You should also report information on sponsored worker such as but not limited to, changes in job title/job duties or salary, change of the work location and certain absences.

    You must have a system you use to check your workers can legally work. Each licence holder is responsible for monitoring immigration status and prevent illegal working.

    When the time approaches, you must also apply for a renewal of your Sponsor Licence so it remains up-to-date.

    We strongly advice businesses to remain complaint with their sponsor licence compliance duties.
