Sponsor Duties Compliance Training

Non-compliance with your sponsor duties may result in significant consequences for your business. If you want your application for a Sponsor Licence to be successful or avoid your licence being degraded or even revoked, you must always comply with the Home Office's requirements. You should ensure that your HR department has proper systems and checks in place that can effectively manage the employment of highly skilled workers from outside the EEA. Our team of professionals offer your business and HR teams comprehensive training to keep you up-to-date with your sponsor duties and be prepared for an immigration audit.

Mock Immigration Compliance Check

Once you have made an application for a Sponsor Licence, the Home Office may want to come to your company and check if appropriate systems are in place to monitor sponsored employees. A successful application needs to meet all requirements laid out by the Home Office. Suppose they are not satisfied that you have appropriate systems to monitor sponsored employees. In that case, your application will be refused, and you may be barred from applying for another Sponsor Licence.

We offer mock Immigration Compliance Checks to help you prepare for an unannounced Home Office visit. Our team will visit your business to check if all appropriate systems are in place and assess your compliance against the Home Office's criteria. We will identify the loopholes in your systems, and at the end of the check, you will receive feedback and advice on whether you are likely to pass an actual Compliance Check.

Mock Audit Check

If you already hold a Sponsor Licence to employ workers, the Home Office may from time-to-time visit your business and check you still comply with your responsibilities as a sponsor. This procedure is called an Immigration Audit and aims to assess whether your business continues to have appropriate systems to monitor sponsored employees. You will be assessed on how you can monitor migrant's activities, keep necessary records and prevent illegal working.

Potential consequences of not passing the audit may be:

1. Your Sponsor Licence may be degraded. You will no longer be able to employ new highly-skilled workers.
2. Your Sponsor Licence might be revoked or suspended. You may be unable to continue sponsoring migrant workers, which means their visas will be curtailed, and they may be required to leave the country.
3. A reduction in the number of Certificates of Sponsorship you can issue.

We can offer you our mock Audit Check to ensure you are ready for a Home Office Immigration Audit. Our team will visit your business to check if you are compliant with all Home Office's criteria. We will provide a report on your current state of compliance and the areas for improvement.

We can also offer you a highly effective mock immigration compliance and Audit Check with your Sponsor duties and prepare you for an audit by the Home Office.
