Business Lawyers | Corporate, Business & Educational Providers

At ICS Legal, we understand that if you are a business, or an educational provider, it is important that you are supported through a complex, sponsor licensing system. The governance of the sponsor licence is set out by the Home Office.

Our Business Lawyers will be able to give you advice, guidance and help throughout the sponsor management system. 

When it comes to businesses, migration plays a key importance to our clients and how they look to bring in competitive edge into their business.

These may include consultants coming to advise on business matters, research on medical assignments, or looking to invest into the growing UK market to name a few.

For the educational providers, it is also important to run an efficient sponsor management system, as you would be sponsoring both students and possibly workers within the establishment. 

With the ever growing stringent compliance requirements and visits, our Business Lawyers will advise you on how to manage your system to be managed, without having the sponsor licence being revoked. 

We offer services for the complete array of business immigration transactions, including:

  1. Applying or management of the sponsor licence system and program. Click here to read more information on how the sponsor licence system operates and how we can help you.

Sponsor licence at a glance

The sponsor licence application is a system for the Home Office to check whether, you, as a business or an educational provider, are fit for the purpose, to support in making sure that migration system is not abused but used for the economic benefits. 

Whether you are considering bringing migrants to work within your business or if you are allowing students to study in the establishment, you will be asked to make sure that the system is managed with integrity. 

Our Business Lawyers will help you from the start of your application to hold a sponsor licence to the management of the sponsor management system.

When you apply for a sponsor licence, the Home Office will make a number of security checks and business checks, to ensure the application can be treated as valid. They will ask you to include evidences to support your sponsor licence application. 

Our Business Lawyers will manage every step of the application process:

  1. Sponsorship License. We will apply to the UK Home Office on your behalf to obtain a license that will enable your company to sponsor foreign employees. We can also become your Level 1 user to ensure the sponsor licence is correctly managed and ensure all the relevant compliances are done. 

  2. Certificate of Sponsorship. Our UK Immigration Lawyers will help you obtain Certificates of Sponsorship which you can present to the employees you wish to employ. This is the document also known as the work permit and used to make their visa application to enter the UK. 

  3. Visa Application. We will prepare and apply for a Skilled Worker or Temporary Worker Visas for your employee to enter or remain in the UK. Click here to read more information
