Sponsorship Forever – An update on the new Skilled Worker and Intra-Company Transfer routesPosted: 14 Jan 2021
The new rules for Skilled Workers and Intra Company Transfer Workers have been in place since 1 December 2020. Join us as we assess what has really changed and how the new requirements are working in practice.
Particular changes we will examine include:
- The removal of a 10% restriction on a Skilled Worker’s shareholding in the sponsoring company. This exciting change allows the owner of an overseas company to set up a UK entity and then work for the UK entity, with the possibility of applying for settlement. This is a really exciting development, but requires careful planning
- Points-based salary calculations
- ‘Defined’ and ‘undefined’ Certificates of Sponsorship
- PAYE information requirements
- And much more . . .
The presentation will last 1.5 hours with lots of time for your questions throughout. Samar and Talitha will also remain available online to discuss any particular concerns following the presentation.
This event has now passed but you can view the recording here.
