Sponsor Licence Renewal

We can help you with your Sponsor Licence renewal with our Sponsor Licence Packages

If you are looking to renew your Sponsorship Licence you will be able to do this within three months of its expiry. In some cases, you will be able to do this within an even larger time period, if the Home Office offers you the opportunity to do so.

You can submit a Sponsor Licence renewal application with the Sponsor Management System (SMS). Prior to this, you should maintain the information of your sponsored employee through the SMS. This will help to ensure your Sponsor Licence renewal is approved.

There are no limits to the number of attempts you can make when applying for a Sponsor Licence renewal. However, each application will incur fresh costs and once your current sponsorship has expired you will no longer be able to reapply. This is also a good opportunity for you to consider upgrading the type of licence you have as this will allow you to provide for more employees. Get in touch today to discuss your options. Read More

FAQs

Am I eligible to apply for a Sponsor Licence renewal?

If your Sponsor Licence is going to expire, you will be eligible to renew it as long as you:

  • pass the Home Office audit;
  • can show you have the correct documentation (this includes working records of all sponsored employees);
  • keep SMS up to date during your sponsorship; and
  • continue to meet and follow Home Office standards and policies.

What is a Sponsor Management System (SMS)?

A Sponsor Management System is used when you already have a Sponsorship Licence and want to manage or renew it.

This system allows you to report any changes in your circumstances. This can be used for both Tier 2 and Tier 5 Visa holders.
