EU Transition: Business Readiness Series: Immigration

What do you need to know and do before 31 December 2020?

From 1 January 2021, free movement will end and the UK will introduce a points-based immigration system. The new system will treat EU and non-EU citizens equally and transform the way in which all migrants come to the UK to work. Anyone coming to the UK to work, excluding Irish citizens, will need to apply for permission in advance.

Holyrood's managing editor, Mandy Rhodes, explored these topics with officials from the Home Office for our Immigration and EU Settlement webinar on 29 October. 

The webinar, now available on-demand, is an opportunity to hear directly from the experts working on the detail. Watch it if your business needs to know:

  • How the points-based system will work and can benefit your company
  • How to become a sponsor
  • How to recruit outside of the UK post-transition
  • The process for EU nationals to get settled status in the UK
