Employers must now pay Immigration Skills Charge

Employers must now pay an Immigration Skills Charge of up to £1,000 per year for each skilled migrant they employ.

New regulations mean that employers must pay a fee, called the Immigration Skills Charge, for every skilled migrant they sponsor under the Tier 2 (General) or Tier 2 (Intra Company Transfer) categories. The fee per migrant is £1,000 per year for larger companies and a reduced rate of £364 for smaller companies.

It is the employer’s responsibility to pay this fee, and failure to do so will mean that a certificate of sponsorship is invalid.
