Companies that file Work Permits?

Post by NationOne » Thu Oct 26, 2006 9:41 am

Are there any companies which file Work Permits by taking you on their payroll ?

My friend is onsite in the UK from a SW company. They are now asking him to go back to India. He wants to stay here longer so that he can complete 5 years. The job market is very hot, but the recruiters will not even send his CV to the client because of the WP issue.

Initially I was onsite from an Indian Software Services company. Last year, a UK based consultancy company filed a work permit (for 5 years) under their name. Basically they have employed me and have placed me on a contract with their client.
They take between 13% and 19% margin, depending upon the rate from the client. But I have to pay the employer's NI. I dint have to pay for the WP processing or anything, and these people are pretty flexible with my salary structure and any documentation needs. It's run by a couple, who themselves are IT contractors. So they were able to understand my needs and concerns. End result = I am earning 70K, whereas earlier with Infosys (onsite) I was getting 38K.

Hi JavaGuy,

I am also in UK since Aug 2005, through an India company. Now I also want to get a permanent offer.

Can you also share the details of UK based consultant at DELETD?

Hi Guys

If you have a project based contract and can bring it to a consultancy, you should be able to get a margin of no more than 22.5% INCLUDING the 12.8% employer's NI. (this is less than the 13-19% + 12.8% employer's NI quoted by JavaGuy)

Things to avoid:

A) Any form of 'bond' or up front fee (if the sponsoring consultancy is genuinely an employer they should be making their money from profit on the IT projects done for clients, not by charging their staff / prospective staff)

B) Punative penalty clauses on leaving. In this respect, anything beyond requiring PARTIAL refunds for training courses / disbursed costs is probably wrong. Good practice is that 1/12th of any such costs should be written off each month, so if you stay 12 months you repay nothing, if you leave after 9 months you repay 3/12ths etc.

C) Any structure which does not give you clarity.

D) Full support for transferring to HSMP / getting ILR.

E) A compliant contract process. Any company that will sign standard agency terms is almost certainly non-compliant which exposes everyone; particulary the WP holder whose permit can be revoked if the company is found to be unsuitable

At we have worked with several good consultancies, and have seen the debris left by rogue operators.

If you are considering such a move, feel free to drop me an e-mail and I can give feedback on any consultancy you may be considering, or suggest one if you have not got one lined up (or if the one you were considering is may be a rogue operator)
