Many of you will be getting a monthly e-mail from the UKVI sponsor team reminding you to request your CoS allocation for next year.
This won’t be received by those clients on Auto Renewal (about half of you) whose new CoS allocation for 2020/2021 will show up on the SMS on 6 April automatically – go to sponsor summary and scroll down to Tier 2 (General) and Tier 2 (ICT) CoS and the new number available will be shown – this is usually equal to the number issued last year. If you didn’t issue any, or may need more this year, then we can always request additional CoS for you.
Those receiving e-mails will not be on automatic renewal, and so we will put in a basic request for you, similar in number to those issued this year, which may well be 0. If you may need any, or any more, next year, we can always request additional CoS for you. We need to provide detailed reasons why eg: the vacancy details and/or candidate details, major recruitment drive, etc..
Remember of course that for all out-of-country allocations we still have to request restricted CoS on a role-by-role basis at the monthly panel.
