Compliance visits to holders of Tier 2 sponsor licences.  Astons Law provide comprehensive support to sponsors throughout the entire sponsorship licence period.


UK employers seeking to hire highly skilled migrant workers from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) are required to obtain a UK Sponsorship Licence. The grant of a sponsorship licence has several important obligations for the sponsorship holders, which the Home Office hold them accountable to.


A sponsor may receive a visit from the Home Office to assess if the company is suitably prepared before issuing a Tier 2 Sponsor licence or to assess that the sponsor can maintain their obligations whilst they are a sponsor. The visit to the sponsor’s premises from the Home Office can be a planned or unplanned visit. Therefore, a sponsor should be prepared at all times.


A Home Office inspector who audits a sponsor will vigilantly review them to ensure that they are consistently meeting the required obligations. The inspector will evaluate the sponsor’s standard of record keeping, reporting and immigration status monitoring, among many other things.


If a sponsor fails to meet the standards of the Home Office, they risk having their licence revoked and being publicly listed as non-compliant on the Home Office website. Therefore, as well as severely impacting their overseas employees, it can also damage the reputation of the company.


Holding a mock audit is a great way to stay prepared and protected from such implications. Astons Law provide comprehensive advice to sponsors on being prepared for such an audit.


Mock Audit:


Astons Law provide support to sponsors throughout the entire period of their sponsorship licence. We can provide sponsors with advice on their obligations and everything required for them to remain compliant.


A Mock audit is an ideal way to mitigate the risk of failing a Home Office audit. We offer our insight into the Home Office procedure and standards of auditing a sponsor. Mock audits are carried out by our experienced Tier 2 Sponsor licence experts.


Our experienced Tier 2 Sponsor licence experts will:


  • Advise the company before the mock audit takes place
  • Provide practical advice to having robust systems in place
  • On the day of the audit, diligently assess the company by conducting all relevant checks
  • Verify information that you gave on your sponsor licence application
  • Check and review record keeping systems and personnel files of sponsored migrants
  • Identify and provide advice on what the sponsor should improve


Astons Law can also attend at the time that the Home Office conducts their audit to provide representation of the sponsor.
