The table below shows the indicative fee scale charged by our immigration team for their services as described. The fee scale reflects the scope of work *involved in a straightforward application on behalf of an individual (except those applying under Tier 1). As most businesses are likely to be seeking advice under the *Points-Based System, a different fee scale will apply (see below).
For more complex applications, please contact us for an individual fee estimate. Elements determining the complexity of a matter can include (but are not limited to) the number of dependants, whether it is a first-time application or an extension, and the number of supporting documents and witnesses.
