We are a specialised UK immigration law firm.

Holding a Sponsor Licence is the lawful way an organisation can hire Non-EU skilled workers.

The Home Office is diligent about investigating those applying for a Sponsor Licence to ensure that Immigration Rules & Regulations are followed properly.

Regardless of the size of your organisation, you must first have an established presence before applying for a Sponsor Licence. If you cannot show you are an established UK business, you will not receive a Sponsor Licence.

If you are a government body in the UK or are listed on the London Stock Exchange, this proves your validity. If not, you must present supporting evidence such as bank account registration, lease agreement, VAT registration, trade documents, and business licences. All documents must be originals or certified copies and are a critical part of a Sponsor Licence application.

If you are satisfying these requirements and genuinely in need of skilled worker who cannot be replaced by British or settled worker, you should secure Sponsor Licence before employing non-EU skilled worker.

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.
