Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I eligible to apply for a Sponsor Licence?

In order to be eligible for a skilled worker sponsor licence, an organisation must have a physical presence in the UK and conduct its operations lawfully. The UKVI assesses the recruitment and HR systems to ensure effective monitoring of migrant workers and compliance with sponsor obligations. Leveraging our experience, we provide a complimentary assessment to identify any additional factors that could affect the application.

To apply, the organisation is required to submit an online application along with supporting information and documents. Typically, a minimum of four documents are necessary, which may include proof of business premises, evidence of a corporate bank account, VAT Certificate, HMRC PAYE confirmation letter, Employer’s Liability Insurance, and proof of registration with the Regulator, among others.

Prices for Sponsor licensing enquiries vary significantly, and quotes will be provided on an hourly or fixed fee basis once we have established the requirements of your case.

 

Around 80% of applications are processed within 8 weeks. However, please note that UKVI may conduct a compliance inspection at your business, which could potentially cause additional delays. UKVI now offers a new priority service for a fee of £500, promising a decision within 10 working days. It is important to note that this service is limited to 10 applications per day, making it quite challenging to secure.

Upon the refusal of the skilled worker sponsor licence application, the organisation will receive written explanations for the decision. If there are no factors triggering a cooling off period, the organisation can immediately submit a new application. The length of the cooling off period, either 6 or 12 months, depends on the specific reasons behind the UKVI’s refusal. While we may provide assistance in cases where errors were made by the case worker, a complete reconsideration is not possible. However, organisations have the option to challenge the decision through a Judicial Review.

The sponsorship licence cost is determined by the size of the organisation and the type of licence required. As of August 2021, the Home Office fees for a skilled worker sponsor licence application are £536 for small or charitable businesses, and £1476 for medium or large businesses. To qualify as a small business, the organisation should have an annual turnover of £10.2 million or less and employ 50 individuals or fewer.

Irrespective of their location, organisations have the opportunity to hire foreign workers, whether they are seeking entry to the UK from abroad or are already present and eligible for sponsorship within the country. To determine the optimal route and strategy for licence application and skilled work visa application on behalf of employees, our corporate immigration team is ready to provide assistance and guidance.
