A UK-based business that wants to recruit foreign employees for its organization needs a sponsor license granted by the UK Home Office.
However, you don’t need a UK sponsor licence to employ Irish citizens, those with settled or pre-settled status under the EU settlement scheme and those with indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
To get a sponsor license, your business needs to meet the following requirements:
You will pay the correct salary rate, as specified by the Home Office.
You must prove that you accept all of the duties of being a sponsor licence holder.
You cannot have the following in order to get a sponsor license:
Depending upon the size (large, medium or small) of your organization, you need to pay the fee for the sponsor license for the first-time application and also for each renewal you apply for. Medium and large organizations are required to pay a sponsor licence fee of £1,476. Small organizations are required to pay a sponsor licence fee of £536.
You need to apply online for a sponsor licence along with a minimum of four specified supporting documents as evidence of the trading presence of your organization in the UK. In addition to that, you need to submit a cover letter to provide background information about your organization.
