Assistance in Sponsorship Management Systems

Assistance in Sponsorship Management Systems | RD Laws


A licenced sponsor is required to fulfil a number of responsibilities in order to prevent illegal employment and assure compliance with UK Immigration Rules.

To skilled visa workers, certificates of sponsorship need to be granted, and additional obligations include monitoring and reporting certain acts relevant to sponsored persons.

Sponsors have the ability to monitor their licences and verify that they are in compliance with all relevant requirements by going into the Sponsor Management Systems (SMS) that is provided by the Home Office. A separate application for a licence to sponsor a skilled worker must also be submitted through the SMS.

As a result of the fact that the Home Office utilises the Sponsor Management Systems to verify that you are performing your duties as a skilled worker licence holder, it is very crucial that the SMS always appropriately represents your firm and any sponsored employees.

Once a company becomes a registered sponsor of Skilled Worker, it has a number of obligations and duties to UK Visas & Immigration and failure to comply can ultimately lead to the licence being revoked.
