Securing A UK Sponsor Licence
An application for a sponsor licence requires comprehensive paperwork in support, showing that you and your business are eligible and demonstrating that you have the capacity to manage a sponsor licence once it has been issued.
You will need to put robust processes in place for running the licence and reporting on the certificates of sponsorship that you issue to overseas workers. We can advise on this and work with you as needed to ensure that you have the support and guidance necessary to comply with the strict sponsor licence regulations.
It is also necessary to show that your organisation has a genuine need to take on overseas workers. The authorities will need to see evidence that you have a real need for the proposed positions to be filled and that the roles have the required salary and skill level.
You will need to appoint one or more individuals to deal with your immigration affairs. The positions to be filled are:
- An authorising officer with overall control;
- A key contact to communicate with UK Visas and Immigration; and
- A level 1 user who will deal with the day-to-day management and use the government’s sponsorship management system.
One person can take on all of the roles, or you can choose to have different individuals involved.
We also deal with sponsor licence rejections, renewals and applications to upgrade a downgraded sponsor licence. In the event that you have been downgraded, we can assist in ensuring you meet the necessary compliance criteria and that you have the right systems in place in respect of record-keeping and reporting, to avoid further issues arising in the future.
Business Immigration Advice And Visa Applications
We deal with applications for a full range of business visas. We can work with you to establish the best visa for your situation and prepare the application on your behalf, ensuring you have the right documentation in support. In addition, we can put together applications for family members and dependants if they need visas to accompany you to the UK.
If you have had your business visa rejected, we can advise you of the strengths and weaknesses of your case, whether it will be possible to make a fresh application or what alternatives might be available.

“Karim was an excellent lawyer, very pleasant to work with and very knowledgeable of the law. I feel the success I’ve had in my application was due to the clear guidance that he provided. There was also a refreshing pace to which he was able to get things done. For any future applications I will happily seek his guidance again.”
