Survey of London businesses on behalf of the LCCI on immigration
- Less than a quarter (21%) of London business decision makers say that their business would be able to afford the new charge which comes into effect next April as part of the Immigration Act 2016.
- Only 36% of London business decision makers say they will be encouraged to train or hire British workers instead of hiring non-EEA nationals.
- Meanwhile, a third (33%) say they will need to cut costs elsewhere in order to pay the charge and employ workers on Tier 2 visas.
