A Sponsor Licence is required by an UK Company wishing to sponsor overseas workers for employment in the UK.
If you want to employ non-UK workers then you will usually need to sponsor them under Tier 2 General of the Points Based System.
This section of our website provides an overview of the UK Sponsor Licence system and should provide you with a basic understanding of the requirements.
The opportunity to hire the people you need from outside the UK can be made far simpler than you might think, although the cost of sponsoring workers is not insignificant.
