Mergers and Acquisitions and Your Tier 2 Sponsor Licence

Intricate corporate structures, mergers and acquisitions can be a problematic issue for any sponsor licence holder, from having to TUPE transfer migrants from one sponsor licence to another or adding new entities to an existing licence.

The Home Office has very strict requirements when it comes to changes to a sponsor licence which makes it very important for any employer to seek timely advice or the status of their employees’ right to work in the UK may be in jeopardy. We are here to help you with any changes to your licence, no matter how difficult or complex these changes are.

Our experienced team has gained extensive knowledge and expertise in this area through advising and assisting clients on a regular basis. Specifically, we can provide you with:

  • Advice on how to meet all the requirements of the Home Office to ensure your sponsor licence is updated when necessary, as well as how to meet your responsibilities as a sponsor licence holder.
  • Assistance in making any submission that is required for your sponsor licence or licences and preparing a covering letter detailing representations to the Home Office of the changes to your sponsor licence.
  • Expert advice through collaboration with our employment team when necessary in order to provide you with timely employment advice.
