IMPACT – HIGH
The Home Office has released additional information on the points-based immigration system that will replace free movement for EU/ EEA nationals Jan. 1, 2021, and will apply to EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA nationals.
Background: The information released this week builds on information the Home Office published in its policy paper earlier this year.
Analysis & Comments: The latest update from the Home Office is welcome news, as it gives a better picture of the new points-based system and how it will operate, providing more details to help U.K. companies plan for recruitment, talent acquisition and staff retention after free movement ends. Employers are reminded that under the transition period, EU, EEA and Swiss nationals who are living in the U.K. as of the end of 2020 must apply under the EU Settlement Scheme by June 30, 2021. Any EU, EEA and Swiss nationals who have not been living in the U.K. by Dec. 31, 2020 will fall under the new points-based system. Employers must also consider that there will be new prescribed methods for conducting Right to Work checks for European nationals from Jan. 1, 2021. Deloitte will provide additional updates on the transition to the new immigration system as further information becomes available.
