Interpreting Home Office' Immigration Audit results

Understanding the results of an immigration audit is as important as going through the audit process itself. As it is the results that will tell you if you've done well or bad in your audit.

The audit

The UKBA's immigration audit results are scored between 1 and 3, where 3 is the highest. The scores are awarded with reference to the following: -

  1. HR Systems: - This relates to whether or not the audit team was able to identify a reasonable and sustainable way of identifying their migrant workers' current grant of leave as well as when it is coming to an end.
  2. Convictions and Civil Penalties: - This relates to whether or not the business has any migrant with any or an unspent criminal conviction or have become liable for a civil penalty.
  3. Migrant compliance: - The UKBA would also seek to determine whether or not migrant employees within your establishment are complying with the immigration rules especially as it relates to their working hours and other possible breaches to their granted leave. An employed migrant student for example who is working more than the working hours they are allowed.
