Many organisations are receiving UKBA / UKVI inspection visits nowadays. YDVISAS is committed to spreading awareness of Sponsor Licence Compliance issues so that sponsors understand the seriousness of the matter and remain compliant with Immigration rules and guidance.

How To Avoid Having Your Sponsor Licence Suspended

Securing and sustaining a Tier 2 Sponsor Licence is indeed an achievement. You may have already received a Pre-Licence and/or Post-Licence visit from the Home Office: as a sponsor, you are now open to compliance audits at any time which can be announced or unannounced.

If the Home Office visits and finds anything out of order or not in compliance with the latest immigration laws, you can have your Sponsor Licence Suspended / Revoked without warning. This would result in you losing your skilled workforce, and being unable to operate as a sponsor.

This is a serious legal matter that requires expertise and an in-depth knowledge of Sponsor Licence Compliance Rules. YDVISAS has been serving businesses operating within these stringent guidelines for many years.

Full Compliance Is Critical

The following are some of the situations that can lead to rulings of failed compliance:

  • Allegations of supplying labour to a third party
  • Not maintaining historical contact details of all your sponsored workers
  • Failing to track migrants, report documents, or maintain records
  • Failing to accurately conduct Residence Labour Market Tests (RLMT)
  • Not following compliance procedures in managing unpaid leave, genuine vacancy issues, and sick leave.

The Home Office now conducts significantly more audits than in the past – and there are no exceptions for businesses which are unprepared for an audit. Consequences for failure to comply with immigration rules range from suspensions to revoked licences, fines, and even criminal charges.
