What is a Sponsor Licence?

A Sponsor Licence plays an important role for the UK-based companies to recruit international workers outside the European Economic Area (EEA) under the Skilled Worker, ICT Route, Tier 2, and Tier 5 visas. After the approval for the licence, it will be valid for 4 years with a renewal option. However, before applying for a sponsorship licence, the company has to confirm that the relevant visa conditions are being met. There are several strict conditions and timings while applying for a Sponsor Licence.

The Need and Importance of a Sponsor Licence

It becomes important to meet customer demands in a global economy and launch innovative products/services to sustain and grow a business. Almost every sector has to employ a talented and productive workforce who can help in meeting these criteria. This creates the demand to hire talent from overseas. So having a Sponsor Licence has become really important, especially in a Post-Brexit world where the country is trying to emerge from the split. The government has also announced a post-Brexit immigration system, where skilled workers are allowed to work in the UK to help grow the country’s economy and contribute to public services. A certificate of sponsorship is a mandatory prerequisite for starting visa applications in ICT, Skilled Worker, T2 and T5 routes, along with the Tier 2 (General) and Tier 5 visa categories. When an organisation assigns a certificate of sponsorship to an individual, it confirms to the Home Office that the proposed employment conditions meet the requirements of the respective visa route.

Eligibility Requirements for Tier 2 Sponsor Licence

There are certain requirements that an organisation must satisfy to get a Sponsor Licence and start hiring workers from overseas.

Home Office Compliance Visit

The purpose of these compliance visits is to check if the organisation has adequate HR and recruitment systems to sponsor foreign nationals and manage migrant employees effectively. It also ensures that the organisation is fulfilling its legal obligations as an employer to apply for a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence.

The Home Office will ensure that;

Sponsor Licence Application Cost

The sponsor licence cost depends on the type and size of an organisation. The application fee has to be paid every time during the sponsor licence (every four years). The Home Office reviews the fees annually on its official website.

The organisations which are recognised as ‘small’ sponsors have to pay a sum of £536 as the sponsor licence cost to sponsor foreign nationals. Organisations that are recognised as “medium” and “large” have to pay a sum of £1,476 as a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence fee. This sponsor licence cost will remain the same for all the organisations which do not meet the criteria to become a “small” sponsor.

I asked to review my financial settlement. Within a matter of a short time, I got an appointment. My solicitor, was very professional and kind. She even offered me the chance to have a video conference if I was unable to go to the office. I felt comfortable and I was treated with respect. I felt confident in her capabilities. She was warm and put me at ease. The process was made very easy for me. Osbourne Pinner family law team was on top of my brief to them. Should I need a solicitor in the future, I will be very happy to go back. Thanks

Very Professional and responsive I instructed Osbourne Pinner Solicitors for my UK Start Up visa. I was so pleased with the whole immigration team. Solicitor Ravi and Ardra dealt with my UK Start Up process. I was so pleased with the way they dealt with the whole process. Everything was so smooth. Both of them were so responsive throughout the whole process. Ms. Ardra updated me all the time. My Endorsement decision came in less than 3 weeks. Their in house business strategist was very supportive and helpful too. The way they provided me support during all the workshops with the business strategist and then preparing me for the endorsement body, it was like a hand holding thing for me.

Osbourne Pinner, and in particular their family law team were recommended to me by a good friend and trustworthy source. I have found in my dealings with them that they go the extra 'proverbial mile' in trying to help. This is not something I have experienced before with any other of the big family law firms. I am very happy with the service and will now recommend to my family, friends and colleagues.
