Business Immigration

At Jacksons, we provide prompt, cost-effective and practical business immigration advice and assistance to businesses and organisations across a range of sectors.

The immigration rules are complex and subject to regular changes. It is crucial that employers who want to recruit workers from outside the EU to fill a role in their business or organisation ensure they comply with the rules and their legal obligations both during the recruitment process and throughout the employment relationship.

Ensuring the smooth recruitment and retention of key personnel can be important to the success of a business and understanding the strict requirements of the immigration rules, the likely timings involved and the obligations on the business is imperative when considering recruiting a worker from overseas. Seeking appropriate legal advice at the outset and training relevant staff are important steps in ensuring compliance with the immigration rules. Breaches can result in significant financial penalties being imposed and cause potential damage to the reputation of the organisation.

It is important for businesses to be aware of all their legal obligations under the immigration rules, including right to work checks, and we provide advice and training to employers on meeting their legal obligations under the immigration rules.
