We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.
I want to share 3 important points, you must consider before applying for a Sponsor Licence.

1. Each organisation applying for a Sponsor Licence must already have a trading presence in the UK and be set up for lawful business operations.

2. You must have at least one individual already in your employ in the UK who will be responsible for ensuring all sponsor duties are carried out. The Home Office is looking for authentic, credible organisations that will take their responsibilities as a Sponsor Licence holder seriously.

3. Genuine vacancy- Most foreign worker positions are filled by Sponsor Licence holders that fall under the Tier 2 category for skilled workers. You must ensure that these potential employees are suitable for the role they will fill. Generally, this means that they must have at least graduate level training and qualify under an approved occupation code as set by The Home Office.

Each foreign worker must be paid a minimum salary, pass an English language requirement, and have no criminal or immigration charges. You must also show that you were unable to fill the designated role from within the UK workforce. All these aspects are necessary for a successful Sponsor Licence application.

A Y & J Solicitors has helped us great deal recently for us to retain our ‘A’ rating Tier 2 sponsor licence. They made all easy for us and we passed our audit with the Home office with flying colours. Being an IT company with Tier 2 Sponsor licence, we were blown away by the complex processes and policies to be implemented to be 100% compliant with the latest Home office’s requirement of Tier 2 sponsorship. It is hard to figure out as to what was enough and correct. It was very stressful to monitor Tier 2 migrants & specially the arrangement of the sponsored workers working at client site on ‘client contract’. A word of warning to other likewise companies, please do not take it easy. There is a lot for the Tier 2 compliance which you do not know that you really “do not know”. So in this case you need a specialist to make you understand first what you “do not know” then help you to fix that. If you are a company with a Tier 2 sponsor licence and want complete peace of mind maintaining your Tier 2 licence and retaining your NON-EU skilled staff then A Y & J Solicitors is the company to go to. They simply do not work as a consultant for me but they literally owned my problem. I cannot ask more than this. Thank you so much and my best wishes to A Y & J Solicitors. I have referred few of my acquaintances to A Y & J Solicitors for their ‘Tier 2 compliance audit’. We at NanoIT Solutions highly recommend A Y & J Solicitors, working with the team has been fantastic experience.
