London-based Osbourne Pinner has marked a significant achievement by aiding over 1000 UK businesses in recruiting employees from abroad, courtesy of its highly effective Sponsor Licence service.
With a stellar reputation and offices in Piccadilly Circus and Harrow, Osbourne Pinner specializes in aiding UK firms in their quest to hire talented individuals residing outside the UK.
The firm’s success in Sponsor Licence and Skilled Worker Visa services is noteworthy, especially post the 2021 shift to the point-based immigration system, maintaining a 100% success rate in Sponsor Licence applications. This track record has earned Osbourne Pinner recognition as a top solicitor for immigration services in London.
Offering a complimentary 30-minute consultation, Osbourne Pinner helps determine business eligibility for a Sponsor Licence. If an application is unsuccessful, the firm only charges half the fee.
Successful sponsor licence applications under this service allow businesses to hire skilled workers from outside the UK, including the EEA, for Tier 2 and Tier 5 visas. These licences, which are valid for four years and subject to renewal, are contingent on meeting all visa requirements.
Tier 2 Sponsor Licence applications, aimed at recruiting long-term employees, necessitate a UK base, an effective HR system, and proof of genuine skilled job opportunities.
Sponsor licence fee structures vary, with small businesses and charities paying £536, while other organisations are charged £1476. Additional fees include the Immigration Skills charge (£1000 per year per worker) and £199 for each Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS).
Osbourne Pinner’s team, proficient in corporate immigration law across the EU and globally, services diverse businesses, including those with niche requirements.
The firm also supports companies in renewing their Sponsor Licences, a critical process to maintain legal sponsorship of non-EEU workers. Richard advises on efficient HR systems to facilitate smooth renewal applications.
