    How to Protect Your Sponsor Licence

    We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.

    Before we start talking about how to protect Sponsor Licence let’s understand why do you need to protect Sponsor Licence.

    Presuming you have a Sponsor Licence and NON-EU skilled sponsored work force, If the home office was to find you in breach of your sponsorship duties, home office Can initiate suspension/ revocation of your sponsor license. If revocation, you loose your sponsored workers and ability to sponsor any more skilled NON-EU staff. This can affect your entire business operation. In a worst case scenario, which I have seen first-hand, the businesses have had to close as a result of loosing key skilled staff.

    It may cost a great deal of money in fines and replacing skilled staff.

    In my experience, wherever I have visited to conduct Compliance Checks, I have found the majority of Sponsor Licence holders not fully compliant with their sponsorship duties.

    Are you one of these? Do you want to make sure that you are fully compliant?

    This is what we offer:

    Number 1. We will provide readily available HR compliance templates for you to use immediately.

    Number 2. We will visit your business, run through a proper compliance audit and advise as to how you become fully compliant as per the Home Office’s policy guidance.

    Number 3. We will provide a written post visit compliance report.

    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.
