Sponsor Licence FAQs

The UK’s post-Brexit labour market is facing significant pressures. Staff shortages across many sectors means that businesses are looking internationally to recruit the talent they need to thrive and grow. In 2020 rule changes took away the need for formal resident labour market testing, and removed the cap on sponsored skilled workers allowed to enter the UK.

While 2021 was quiet for immigration law changes, 2022 will see to many adjustments, especially to business-related law. New visa categories will be introduced, and already existing visas and rules will continue to be condensed and changed, such as a new mobility route for global businesses.

A new High Potential Individual visa will provide workers with flexibility to change jobs or employers, and will aim to simplify the immigration process for qualifying applicants. This aligns with the Scale-Up category, which aims to make immigration easier for those with viable business ideas.

While these factors look promising on the surface, they provide more options for potential immigrants to navigate and understand, further increasing the complexity of the system. Also, they raise questions about how they might affect the standard working visas, and whether further development in these areas will be neglected.

The sponsor licence application fees vary depending on the type of workers you are planning to hire, the length of time they will be employed for, and the size of your business.

If you are applying:

  • For a standard Worker licence – £536 for small or charitable sponsors, and £1,476 for medium and large sponsors.
  • For a Temporary Worker licence – £536 for both small and charitable, and medium and large sponsors.
  • For a Worker and Temporary Worker licence – £536 for small or charitable sponsors, and £1,476 for medium and large sponsors.
  • To add a Standard Worker licence to an already existing Temporary Worker licence – no fee is required for small and charitable sponsors, but £1,476 for medium and large sponsors.
  • To add a Temporary Worker licence to an existing Worker licence – no fee is required for sponsors of any size.

For any questions about these bands, or what your company qualifies as, please call 0044 161 234 6800 for our Manchester office, or 0044 207 046 7185 for our London office

If you hold a sponsorship licence you can check your expiry date and earliest renewal date in your sponsor management system (SMS) account. Usually, the earliest renewal date is 3 months before the expiry date, but sometimes the Home Office can invite a sponsor to apply earlier. You will need to ensure all the information in your SMS account is accurate before applying to renew the sponsor licence and paying the application fee.

On the other hand, if any of the following is applicable you will need to wait at least 6 months before you can re-apply and you won’t receive a refund for your application fee:

  • You submitted false documentation
  • Your HR and internal processes are not sufficient to comply with your sponsorship duties
  • You do not meet the requirements to be a sponsor in the category you applied
  • You do not trade in the UK
  • You are legally prohibited from becoming a director of a company in the UK

There are many reasons a sponsor licence can be revoked, therefore it is recommended that you seek expert legal advice as soon as you receive a revocation letter from the Home Office. Depending on the severity of the case, a solicitor may be able to start building a case to appeal the decision.

In order to prevent your licence certificate being revoked, it is advised that you always adhere to your sponsorship duties. This includes:

  • Checking that your foreign workers have the correct skills, qualifications and accreditations to do the job advertised
  • Only assigning certificates of sponsorship for suitable jobs
  • Making UKVI aware if your sponsored workers aren’t adhering to the terms of their visa

What our clients say…

The British passports of my four children successfully reached us this week.

I wanted to thank the Latitude Law Firm for the constant professional support provided to us throughout the process. Your services have been helpful for us at each stage of the process. We would be happy to hire you again in the future for the process of my husband, and would also recommend your firm to others around us.

Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to appreciate the hard work of Joel Reiss towards the successful completion of our case. His support for all of us from day 1 till the very last day has been commendable. Me and my children are very thankful to him for the smooth execution.

Looking forward to hiring the firm for our next case as well.

Four British passports

To Gemma and the team, Thank you very much for your amazing job done. You are life savers.

Allowed Appeal

Just to thank you all for the help given with Bodil’s EU Settlement Scheme application, which came through in the last few days.

A good friend of ours once said: “People do not employ lawyers because they help; they employ them because they make a difference”.

I’m convinced that referral to Latitude did jolt the Home Office into progressing consideration of the application, and it made all the difference.

T & B.
