Don't run the risk of damaging or losing your business

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. Also, if you mistakenly employ someone or a group of people without the correct permission to work in the UK, then you could receive a large Civil Penalty and damage your businesses reputation as a result

Why take the risk?

Ensure that your staff have got to grips with your immigration legal responsibilities by instructing us to independently assess and monitor your immigration compliance practices. We have already helped many businesses to bring their immigration compliance practices in line with their legislative obligations as an employer of foreign nationals. We can also help you. Don’t run the risk of damaging or losing your business.

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.

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.

Firstly I would like to thank Andrew and his team for their hard work. My wife arrived in the UK after the EU deadline and we desperately needed a solicitor who would help and tell me how it is. Andrew is a professional and fantastic solicitor and his platform was easy to use to Upload documents. After the home office dragged their feet we managed today to get the decision. I can’t thank you enough and would recommend his services to anyone in an immigration dilemma. Thanks again!
