This is an area where B P Collins thrives, providing commercial advice to businesses setting up in the UK. This includes offering business immigration services from our employment law team by advising skilled workers who need Tier 2 applications. We are also advising on the difficulties and challenges of Brexit.
The UK is currently working on a Brexit agreement to leave the EU bringing much uncertainty to businesses and individuals. One change which has been clarified is the new settled status immigration process for EU nationals. Our immigration team are here to help EU nationals living in Oxfordshire with this new application process.
Thame employers should be advising their EU employees to keep up-to-date with the progress of implementation of settled status. Ultimately, this is the only route that will secure the status of EU citizens in the UK post 31 October 2019 and if EU citizens do not take these steps, there may come a point that they’re regarded as illegal workers, attracting the significant penalties and sanctions that go with it.
Some of our staff live in Thame and are active in their communities. Our corporate social responsibility programme is active across the region and over many years we’ve supported many local events and organisations.
