Why do I need legal advice about immigration?
If your business is affected by issues to do with immigration, it is advisable to obtain expert advice to ensure that you comply with immigration laws and regulations. In recent years, immigration has been the subject of many complicated laws that apply in different situations. A new law is currently being considered by the UK parliament that will make the law more complicated still.
Businesses affected by immigration issues often find the law very hard to understand. Yet, the penalties for failing to comply with the laws can be severe. For example, it is an offence to employ an individual in the UK who does not have the right permission to live here. Those who do not have the correct permissions may be subject to being deported.
There is a complex points-based system used by the government to decide whether someone is entitled to enter the country and for how long they are allowed to stay. The points-based system covers family ties to the country, the skills level of the applicant, financial investment and the reasons for wanting to come to the UK, among many other factors.
