A commercial focus for all your business immigration needs!

To succeed in business you need to keep your best staff?

Employing foreign workers can make all the difference to the success of your business. If you lose part of your work force for whatever reason then your business could really suffer.

Why take the risk? Ensure that your HR department has got to grips with your legal responsibilities by instructing us to independently assess your HR compliance practices. We have already helped a lot of clients bring their organisation practices in line with their legislative obligations. We can also help you. Don't run the risk of damaging or losing your business.

Our tutorials will help to keep you on top of your legal responsibilities as an employer of foreign workers. The Sponsorship Management System is complex, but with the help of our tutorials you can take control and keep your licence.

Regulatory Risks

We can help you achieve your business strategic goals in a safe environment free from risk associated with non-compliance of regulatory restrictions imposed by sections 15 to 25 of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006 (the 2006 Act). You could be sent to jail for 5 years and might have to pay a civil penalty (fine) of up to £20,000 for each illegal worker found working illegally within your business. Employers now have a duty to prevent illegal working in the UK by carrying out prescribed document checks on people before employing them to ensure they are lawfully allowed to work. An employers obligations under the Act continue even after the employee has left their employment.

Compliance Assessment

Understanding the threats and risks relevant to your business or organisation is crucial. Our bespoke services are designed to help you or your HR department(s) understand what the threat to your business is and how to overcome that threat. We can help you discover what the most critical areas are within your business environment and then provide effective methodology to determine the level of exposure. Regardless of what is identified our compliance assessments are designed to help quantify any problems so we can work together to solve it. Our overall goals are to ensure you have in place practices and policies that met your legislative responsibilities.

Off Site Monitoring Services

Our immigration casework portal enables us to monitor your current and future non-compliance risk. With your help we can provide an effective monitoring system that has been designed to protect your business.  We can deploy various safeguards to ensure that you don’t get caught out. Most organisations aren’t aware of a breach until it’s too late, but we have bespoke software that enables us to quickly identify whether a breach has occurred or is about to occur. Our bespoke software collects data directly from your HR managers and supervisors for analysis. We use that data to help us assess and monitor the risk to your business or organisation.

Dedicated Account Manager

Your business will be allocated a dedicated account management who will provide professional support as and when you need it most. Our account managers are experienced immigration solicitors and caseworkers that can provide independent advice on any business immigration matter.  As your dedicated account manager he or she will make every effort to understand your business immigration needs. They will work with you to achieve both your short and long term business goals. Building a good business relationship with your account manager will inevitably help you to set up compliant systems and practices that suit your business needs.

Unannounced HR Compliance Visits

If you have genuine concerns about your compliance practices then we would recommend a unannounced independent on-site audit. Our audits are comprehensive, in fact we will assess your business the same way a UK Border Force Immigration Compliance Offer would. We will interview managers, supervisors and employees to determine whether a breach has occurred or is likely to occur in the new future. We will formulate our findings and prepare an independent report on how your business has performed. Where required we will provide advice on how practices can be improved to ensure compliance.

HR Risk Analysis Reports

We will prepare a detailed onsite risk report when completing an independent audit on your behalf.  We can also prepare an off-site risk analysis report. Both report types will contain data relating to the overall compliance risk associated with your business practices. Your report will include information highlighting potential threats, vulnerabilities and or risky HR practices that could expose your business to bad press or large civil penalties. Your report will also contain a compliance risk score of anything between 1 – 10. Ten being very high risk.  Where necessary your report will contain practical advice on what should be done to improve your score to meet your legal responsibilities as an employer of foreign nationals.

Remember, the Home Office will expect you to have systems in place to meet, and maintain, your obligations as a sponsor or employer of foreign workers. Don’t get caught out! The Home Office can visit your business premises at any time to check you have the proper systems in place.  Having the correct systems in place can make all the difference. Having access to up-to-date guidance material will also help you to keep on top of things.
