What is a Scale Up License?
A scale-up sponsor licence allows UK-based businesses who can demonstrate a sustained period of high growth to recruit and sponsor overseas nationals to work for them. Companies who qualify will be able to issue workers with a valid Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS), enabling them to apply for a Scale-Up Worker Visa to work in the UK and in their sponsored role.
Can any UK company apply for a UK Scale Up License?
Absolutely. There are no limitations on which businesses can apply for a UK license, but you do need to meet the eligibility requirements, including:
- Have had annual average employment or revenue growth rate over a three-year period of greater than 20%, and
- Had a minimum of 10 employees at the start of the three-year period.
I already have a Sponsorship License. Do I need to apply for a Scale License anyway?
Yes – the Scale Up License criteria differs from the Skilled Worker criteria, which requires a seperate license to hire qualified applicants.
What are the benefits of the Scale Up Route vs a Skilled Worker License?
There are many differences between these two types of candidates, including job requirements, compliance, and application process. To understand the pros and cons of a Scale Up License, you can review our blog post here.
