Small changes, significant repercussions

30 March 2011

Employers who are registered as Tier 2 sponsors have a duty to inform the UK Border Agency (UKBA) of changes to their arrangements with migrant employees caused by structural reorganisation.

Any change in the corporate form of a sponsor must be reported to the UKBA, no matter how seemingly innocuous. For example, even the change of a sponsor's company name would need to be disclosed, as would the transfer of employees from the sponsor to another entity in the same group (regardless of whether this is a TUPE transfer).

Sponsors unsure as to their position should take advice from their Kingsley Napley representative.
