Basics – Tier 2 Sponsor Licence
We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.
In this short clip, we will cover the basics about Sponsor Licences.
A Sponsor Licence is a UK government-issued licence that gives an employer permission to hire foreign workers. A foreign worker is anyone who does not have citizenship or residency in the UK, and anyone who is a Non-EU national.
If you hire a foreign worker who is without right to work, you are operating illegally.
There are two sides to sponsorship. On the employer side, you must have a Sponsor Licence, and a Certificate of Sponsorship for each NON-EU worker you hire.
On the NON-EU worker side, they will have a Visa for working in the UK and meet the qualifications for the job.
Holding a Sponsor Licence is an ongoing responsibility. You must always conform to the Home Office’s requirements. These include record keeping, reporting, and ensuring each NON-EU sponsored worker remains legal to work for you. Failing on compliance duties may attract strict actions by the Home Office which includes suspension or revocation of sponsor licence or civil penalty of thousands of pounds if you are employing illegal migrants.

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 The day our Tier 2 sponsor licence was revoked, we had a nightmare as to how we would keep up with our Non EU skilled staff within our business.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.
