Business Immigration Laws

In recent years, the immigration laws issued by the Home Office have become progressively more complex. This has affected business immigration procedure, and as a result, the laws have become more challenging to navigate for both employers and employees.

Unfortunately, the complexities of these laws make it much harder for UK businesses to employ from overseas. Despite many proven benefits, both socially and economically, some companies are discouraged from hiring workers outside the UK.

IQA Immigration passionately believes in the value of overseas workers who provide your business access to a wealth of knowledge and experience. It has also been proven that introducing a diverse range of life experiences to your team positively impacts the business as a whole.

We aim to help you and your business manage the challenges in place and navigate complex immigration processes. This will help you to hire migrant workers safely, protecting the rights of both your business and your employees.

What immigration issues might I face?

The Home Office has introduced a Points Based System (PBS) regarding its stance on immigration. This means that anyone who is coming to the UK to work must meet specific requirements. The worker will score ‘points’ under each criterion in a process that can be complicated and tricky to manoeuvre. 

Companies that employ overseas workers must ensure they have a sponsor licence. It is imperative that your business applies for and maintains the correct licence, or you risk facing harsh penalties.

We are here to help ensure that you and your business comply with immigration laws, such as the prevention of illegal working regulations, and assist in obtaining the correct certificates.
