Today’s vlog is about the increasing Home Office visa fees and civil penalty charges for employers found to be knowingly employing individuals without the legal right to work in the UK. We will provide an update on the new levels of the Home Office fees and penalties coming to play in due course. We aim to provide a brief overview and useful tips on effective planning to accommodate potential costs associated with future hires, as well as on compliance and legal right to work checks conducted by UK companies. Please note that the Home Office has now confirmed that the increase to the Immigration Health Surcharge will come into force on 6 February 2024.
