A Sponsorship License holder who does not follow their duties outlined by the Home Office risks a Sponsor License revocation.
Having a Sponsor License revoked means that a company will not be able to hire any further migrant talent. They would also lose the right to employ any of their current migrant staff. It may also result in a loss of credibility or reputation for any business.
Our expert immigration attorneys offer a range of services to help those who have their Sponsor License revoked. We can liaise with the Home Office, determine the grounds for the revocation and use this to assess possible options.
Our lawyers are also fully qualified to act as representatives if an appeal is taken before a tribunal. We offer a fast, reliable and comprehensive support service for all businesses and employees who may be affected. Contact us on +1844 290 6312 today or use our online inquiry form to speak to an experienced immigration lawyer.
To be eligible to begin a Tier 5 or Tier 2 Sponsor application, a business must:
The Home Office will expect proof that the business is genuine and has a legitimate need for an overseas worker. They may intend to validate this through a visit to the company during the application process.
A Sponsor License revocation can be of serious detriment to a business. It will result in the loss of all current migrant workers and the inability to hire any more. It will also seriously affect the reputation of any business.
There is also the risk of large fines and a civil penalty.
Employees with a Tier 2 Visa are required to find a new employer who can sponsor Tier 2 applications within 60 if a Sponsor License is revoked.
Without a Sponsor License, businesses are unable to legally hire any foreign workers from outside the EEA/Switzerland.
A letter from the Home Office should be responded to immediately. The response deadline must be followed, only in the rarest of cases are the deadlines extended. Cooperating with the Home Office in this process can work in your favor.
The first step after receiving a Sponsor License revocation is to find out the grounds for the revocation by the Home Office. This will usually feature in the revocation letter.
The next step should be a meeting between management and personnel involved in the alleged breach. This will allow you to address the breach and start to resolve it.
There may be a chance to appeal this decision. To do so, information regarding the breach will need to be collated. If there is any difficulty in obtaining the necessary documents, this will impact the appeal dramatically. Our services can assist in gathering the necessary evidence.
The evidence and information should relate to the breach and the detriment revocation will have due to loss of Tier 2 employees.
