Tips  For UK Sponsor Licence

In the UK, getting a sponsor licence is a carefully planned process that involves applying. It’s also important to make sure that all the appropriate supporting documents are included.

A step-by-step guide on how to apply for a sponsor licence, including necessary documents and preparation tips. 

Applying for a sponsor licence

Getting a sponsor licence in the UK is helpful for both companies and their workers who are not from the UK. Businesses can hire skilled people from all over the world, filling important positions that might not be filled otherwise. Having a marketing licence also makes a company look like a great place to work, which attracts top talent from around the world. For workers from outside the UK, it means chances to move up in their careers and grow as a person in a new setting. This encourages diversity and new ideas in the workplace.

Sponsor Licence

There are different types of sponsor licences, such as Tier 2 General for skilled workers and Tier 5 Temporary Worker for a wide range of groups. Immigration experts talk about the pros and cons of each type of sponsor licence and why UK companies need them.

Documents Required For a Sponsor Licence Application

To support your application, you will need to provide several supporting documents, typically at least four. The specific documents required depend on your business type and the position you are filling:

  1. Recent financial year accounts showing active business operations.
  2. Copies of goods or services contracts from the past 12 months.
  3. Confirmation of a current corporate bank account with a UK-registered Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority.
  4. A valid VAT registration certificate.
  5. The franchise agreement, if applicable.
  6. Documented proof of business registration.
  7. Endorsement from a governing body, if applicable.
  8. Details of parent organization, hierarchy, congregation size, clergy count, meeting places, and worship schedule for Religious Worker Sponsorship, if applicable.
  9. Proof of connection through ownership, control, or joint venture.
  10. Documentation supporting your graduate training program.
  11. Documents showing your business presence in the UK.
  12. Proof of overseas trading activities.
  13. Documentation of your planned UK expansion.

Additional documents may be necessary, such as an organizational hierarchy chart, employer’s liability insurance certificate, evidence of listing, self-assessment tax return, company tax return, or a premises alcohol-serving license, depending on your specific needs. For example, if you are applying for a Skilled Worker Visa or Temporary Worker (Creative Worker Visa), you will need a document highlighting the endorsement from a governing body of the sport.

All documents must be provided within five working days of the online application. The documents should be in their original form, but the Home Office might accept certified documents. Note that the Home Office may ask you to provide more documents.

Sponsor Licence Rating

Your business will get an A-rated licence and be added to the list of donors if your application is accepted.

You could lose your licence or get a B rating if you don’t do what you’re supposed to as a sponsor. In this case, the UKVI provides a plan of action. You must follow this plan to regain your A-category license. It costs £1,476 for the plan.

You won’t be able to give out any more funding badges until you can show that you’ve made changes and are now back at the A-level.

Sponsor Licence Advice

A person who has a sponsor licence must follow clear rules about hiring foreign workers. 

Following the rules and guidelines in the Sponsor Guidance is what it means to be legal as a 

licence user.

The Home Office can do any kind of compliance visit (also called “compliance audits” or “inspection visits”) they want, and they will not stand for anyone not following the rules.

It means checking your records, proof, or information that you’ve already sent during a digital compliance inspection.

People who don’t follow the rules could get fines, a legal penalty, or have their Sponsor Licence suspended or taken away.

If this happens, it could be too late for a business to recover.

To ensure licence compliance, there are four areas. Some of the main tasks are:

  1. Stopping people from working illegally and keeping an eye on their immigrant situation
  2. Record-keeping responsibilities
  3. Reporting responsibilities
  4. General Jobs
