Immigration Skills Charge

Organisations should be aware that indications from the Government are that the visa levy imposed on organisations sponsoring workers from outside the EEA and Switzerland in skilled areas, will be implemented in April 2017.

This levy will be set at £1,000 per employee, per year, and at a reduced rate for small or charitable organisations.  It will not apply to PhD level jobs and international students switching from student visas to working visas.
