Urgent – Prepare for December 1st and the new UK immigration system

Act now to ensure your business is compliant when the new system comes into force on 1st December 2020.

As seen in

The new immigration rules come into force on 1st December 2020: are you prepared to protect your company, board members, and sponsored staff?

Following urgent guidance updates, the new immigration system is now coming into place from 1st December 2020, instead of 1st January 2021.

What does this mean for you, your company and your sponsored staff? With less than a month to go until the new immigration system comes into play, it is now urgent that all UK businesses who are either already employing migrant workers or looking to recruit internationally in the future, prepare their processes, people and systems for change.

As a leading regulated immigration law firm, Migrate UK deals with hundreds of cases every month where businesses like yours have unwittingly compromised their immigration compliance, often by missing simple steps in the auditing process.

Being non-compliant can lead to a myriad of complications and penalties for your organisation, from fines to loss of valued staff and even criminal charges for senior staff.

In addition, with many international candidates now only considering job offers from firms already listed as Home Office-approved sponsors, there’s a very real risk of being left behind in the competitive talent market if you do not have the correct sponsorship credentials in place.

Over 95% of UK businesses are non-compliant with immigration regulations*, most of them without even realising it.

Luckily, there is a great deal you can do to ensure your company navigates quickly and smoothly into this new immigration system without risking non-compliance.

What our Clients Say
“Jonathan has been my trusted Immigration Practitioner & Advisor since September 2009 … all the way from converting my Student Visa to a Tier One General then, and now on the verge of getting my ILR. Over these 5 years, I have no hesitation in saying that he has been absolutely stellar in his approach. To me, three things stand out in this context. First & foremost, is Jonathan’s ‘Master Yoda Like’ knowledge of what the Home Office expects and then pre-empting any unusual quirks/questions that may come up. Second, is the fact that his firm is neither a one-man show nor is it a huge firm where one tends to get lost; it is a mid-sized well-oiled machine, where Jonathan’s skills are well-supplemented by a reliable team making the final offering to the client a most desirable end product. Finally, not only are charges reasonable generally relative to the quality of work but the No Success-No Fees Policy indeed speaks volume of Jonathan and his team’s confidence in their abilities year after year.”

“I would very highly recommend Jonathan Beech and the Migrate UK team for immigration inquiries and support. I turned to them in the run-up to applying for ILR while on a Tier 2 work permit, at a time when advice previously given to me had turned out to be erroneous, leading me to become very worried that I would not be eligible for ILR and that my status in the UK was in serious jeopardy. I urgently called the Migrate team on the back of a recommendation from my brother and quickly got the advisement I needed, and I was happy to receive my ILR a couple of months later. Beyond providing sound advice, perhaps equally important was how the Migrate team handled my query at a time of personal distress. They were very quick to respond, attentive to my situation, very reassuring, and gave me the right information. Not only were they professional, but also very caring and supportive.”

“In January 2020, the Home Office sent us a sponsor licence final suspension (pre-revocation) letter on the basis that they did not believe one of our sponsored employees was carrying out a skilled vacancy and that we were not holding the required records for our employees.

We disputed this and reached out to Migrate UK to act as our representative to remedy the situation and ensure we could retain our licence and our employee of nearly five years. Migrate UK provided us with comprehensive guidance on the supporting material to be gathered to back up our claim and drafted a detailed response based on our situation using experience gained in situations faced by other organisations which have found themselves approaching Migrate UK in similar circumstances.

We are delighted to report that the suspension was removed and that we have been awarded our Grade ‘A’ licence rating again. Many thanks for the team at Migrate UK who made this possible and were a pleasure to work with at a time of extreme stress.”

“Dear Jonathan It has been a pleasure having mine and my family’s Tier 1 UK Immigration application processed through you and your team. Your highly professional approach coupled with a strong personal touch has been invaluable. Most importantly though, what stood out throughout our interaction was your ‘outstanding knowledge of the process & almost soothsayer like ability to know what and when to expect’. Moreover, compared to many other firms not only are your charges more reasonable but your policy of initially clarfying all doubts at no cost and then saying that you would only charge the fees upon grant of the visa is indeed extremely commendable, especially in today’s times. May I take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart and wish you and your firm all the best for the future.

“Karen has been advising my Chilean wife and I for two years now, taking us from considering UK work visas through to finalising my wife’s spouse visa. She continues to be the first person I go to to seek advice around my wife’s residence permit. Karen has always provided detailed, clear and timely advice; however, what I value more is her approach to offering help and support that goes well beyond a commercial interaction. Every time I approach her for advice I am left with impression that her primary motivation is to help – a rear commodity these days. I would recommend Karen unreservedly to anyone seeking advice and assistance with any immigration issues.”
