star this property answer text <p>Businesses who are licensed sponsors may already directly assign certificates of sponsorship to workers. The exception is where the Tier 2 (General) annual limit applies, in which cases employers must request certificates under a monthly allocation. This ensures that places go to workers with the skills most in need and who will make the greatest economic contributions.</p><p>The entity sponsoring the worker needs to be sufficiently aware of their activities – that means the employer, rather than a representative body, is best suited to be the sponsor.</p> more like this
