If you are a Sponsorship Licence holder and you do not uphold the duties and responsibilities expected of you by the Home Office, you may risk being subject to a Sponsor Licence revocation.

Your Sponsor Licence may be revoked for a number of reasons, including:
It is important to note that the Home Office can visit Sponsorship Licence holders without announcement to ensure regulations are being followed accordingly.
Sponsorship Licence revocation can be of huge detriment to your business as it results in the loss of important employees, future workers and your reputation as a UK employer.
This will also impact employees with Tier 2 Visas as they will be required to find a new employer who can supply a Certificate of Sponsorship within 60 days if your Sponsor Licence is revoked.
Without a Sponsor Licence, you will not be able to legally hire migrant employees from outside of the EEA or Switzerland.
A letter from the Home Office is not to be ignored and should be acknowledged and responded to immediately. The response deadline set by the Home Office must be complied with, only in very rare cases are the deadlines extended. Being proactive and cooperating with the Home Office can be advantageous during this process.
The first step to resolving the issue of Sponsorship Licence revocation is to understand the grounds of your revocation. Usually, this will be detailed in the letter you receive from the Home Office.
The next step should be a discussion between management and the personnel involved with the alleged breach, to address the issue and how to prevent it happening again in the future.
You may be able to appeal your letter – in order to do this, you must gather all the information and evidence pertaining to the grounds of your Sponsor Licence revocation. If there is a difficulty in obtaining the documents and information needed, this will impact your appeal dramatically.
The evidence and information should not only be relevant to the breach but also the possible detriment to the company such as the effect the revocation of a Sponsorship Licence may have on the loss of Tier 2 employees.
