The following Immigration practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Sponsor organisations are required to report various changes of circumstances affecting their organisation to the Home Office. How to submit the report and who should do it differs according to the nature of the change.
See Practice Note: Downgrading and revocation of sponsorship licences under Tiers 2 and 5 for more details on the sanctions that a sponsor can receive for non-compliance with these reporting duties.
The following changes should be reported by the Level 1 user on the 'request change of circumstances' function on the Sponsorship Management System (SMS). A Level 2 user cannot do this. All of the listed changes bar two must be reported within 20-working days of the relevant circumstance occurring. This general timeframe was changed from 28 calendar days in the 6 April 2014 version of the Tiers 2 and 5: guidance for sponsors, also referred to as the Sponsor Guidance (SG). The SG states that the Home Office may follow up with a request for evidence of the change.
