Hi Friends,

I am working as a analyst with a trading company, that company doesn't have a tier 2 license.The company has already applied for visa,it has been three months, still we didn't get license.(Home office is extremely slow). I'm looking for umbrella company who can sponsor me in the mean time.

Regards,
Kiran

You have not given yourself much time. If another sponsor is not immediately available then I would suggest submitting an application with a request that it is held in abeyance pending registration. Not guaranteed to work and it would rely on the employer having made no mistakes with the Sponsor Registration application - they very often do make mistakes though. I would also be ensuring that the Labour Market Test can be to save time in the event that the request to hold in abeyance is refused and you have to leave the UK.

Get in touch through our website if the employer or you require assistance with this.

I believe this is bodyshopping and therefore illegal?

If he can find a genuine employer who have a genuine service contract with the end user, it is legal.

As companies cannot get licence for immigrants in due time (Home office is extremely busy),it needs look for other ways to keep its key staff in the country.This problem is created due to closure of HSMP scheme.In US,lot of consultancies offer this type of service.Their visa system is much more flexible.

I think the way it works in IT whether it's legal or not I don't know - is the person wins a contract role on his skills but has no visa. He then contacts these umbrella companies who take over the contract and apply for the tier 2 for the person as if he was an employee. As soon as it's over the employee is let go and usually only a tiny fraction of the contracted rate is passed on to the person. And the working has to pay for the permit costs - £1k a year I saw...

May not be illegal as such but it's immoral IMHO since the person with the skills is taken advantage of. I'll try and find a link to one, caused huge uproar on the IT Contractor forum I'm on!
