Changes to the Tier 2 Visa Sponsorship Licence
Proposed Immigration Bill Changes
The question of whether, or not, there will be an extension to the Brexit transitional period looms in the air but generally it is accepted by all experts that 31st December 2020 will be the Brexit Day!
Whether or not there is an extension, employers need to proceed on the basis that free movement of EU nationals will come to an end and the new UK visa rules will come into effect on 1st January 2021.
Who is Affected
The controversial proposed new Immigration Bill will effect small, medium and large businesses regardless of size. There will be changes to the intra-company transfer rules which will effect multinational businesses.
To ensure that you are prepared for the inevitable changes, if you are employing or you plan to employ EU Citizens as workers it is imperative that you apply for a Sponsorship Licence immediately.
