Business immigration – how we can help

With immigration a key political issue ahead of the upcoming general election, businesses can often find themselves on the front line of the debate. Therefore, it is vital that they ensure their recruitment processes are in line with statutory requirements.

Employers are increasingly relying on overseas workers to provide the skills they need for their business, and immigration clearance for key employees can therefore be crucial for a business to succeed.

Following the introduction of the points-based system, employers are required to do more than ever to comply with immigration regulations, or face significant penalties for employing illegal workers.

It is important that a business puts in place the correct procedures and trains recruitment staff to operate them to ensure compliance and avoid any penalties.

Our employment team provides a full service to employers, from advising on business visitors and international assignments, to the tiered points-based system. We can also assist overseas companies looking to transfer employees to the UK.

We can help companies obtain sponsorship under the points-based system and provide practical advice on using the sponsor management system.

Business immigration can play a key role in a company’s workforce. We go the extra mile to provide practical and business-focused advice to help businesses achieve their commercial goals in a cost effective way.
