Does my business need an immigration compliance audit?

19 Feb 2024, 06 mins ago

In the complex and ever-evolving landscape of UK immigration, compliance audits play a pivotal role in ensuring adherence to laws and regulations. For businesses navigating the immigration and sponsorship process, regular compliance audits can be invaluable.

Immigration compliance is not a one-time obligation, but rather an ongoing duty. This applies regardless of whether or not your UK business is registered with the Home Office.

The ongoing monitoring and review of immigration-related activities within an organisation is essential to identify any potential non-compliance issues. This is particularly the case in the current climate, where Home Office penalties for non-compliance have recently tripled. By involving experts like Gherson to perform an audit of your HR systems, involving a review of your pre-employment processes and then your subsequent monitoring of employees and record-keeping systems, you can hope to catch any issues early and, where required, ensure that they are remedied right away.
