Immigration Limit is Under Scrutiny

If you have been keeping up with the news as far as the immigration limits in the UK are concerned, you will probably know that April 2011 is set to be a big date. This is when an annual limit will be brought into effect that will permanently set a limit on the number of people who can come to the UK who do not come from the EU.

However this is not the subject of the latest scrutiny. Between now and April 2011 the UK government is looking to introduce a temporary cap on immigration. The idea is simple – if anyone wants to come to the UK from non-EU countries they are likely to want to do so before the permanent cap comes into place.

There has been talk of court action regarding the temporary limit as some believe the measures are against the law. But UK Immigration Minister Damian Green believes this is not the case. He has also stated he will “defend this challenge” and he is “confident of success” in doing so.

I can understand why the government wants to introduce the cap on immigration. They want to avoid the chance of a flood of people coming into the UK before the new rule comes into effect. I will be watching closely to see whether any potential court action does come to fruition before the new law comes in next year.

In the meantime it may pay dividends to be aware that we can handle the tax affairs of anyone earning an income in the United Kingdom. You can contact us at St Matthew now by using the link above. All contact will be completely confidential.
