UK BA Compliance – Be compliant and thorough – it’s expensive to breach

Syncurio: Your Trusted Partner for UKBA Compliance in the Care Industry.

The UK Care industry stands as one of the largest employers of overseas workers in the UK. With such a diverse workforce comes the crucial responsibility of ensuring compliance with UK Border Agency (UKBA) Right To Work regulations.

Keeping compliant can feel like a full-time job, especially considering the intricacies of the regulations. This can cause an administrative headache trying to stay on top of all the paperwork. What’s more, the British government has dramatically increased fines to £60,000 for each case where an employee lacks the legal right to work – up from £20,000.

Penalties of this amount could be hugely detrimental to the profitability, and feasibility of running, your business.

Compliance: Not just a visa check.

Compliance extends beyond simply checking over a visa. It encompasses an ongoing, dynamic spectrum of responsibilities for employers. Understanding these complexities and ensuring the correct processes are undertaken can be challenging.

This is where Syncurio can help. Our expert teams of researchers and developers have created an intelligent insight-driven software system that makes compliance management in your care home a breeze.
