I am a director of a company where I am planning to apply for Sponsorship Licence. I found that in the guidance says SMS user can’t assign CoS to relative. however I found some exception in the same guidance under comply with law heading that disclose if you assign a CoS to a family member of anyone else within the sponsor organisation if it is classed as a small or medium sized business, or if you are aware that you are assigning a CoS to a family member of anyone else within a sponsor organisation classed as a large business - this should be done via the ‘notes’ field on the CoS

further in the guidance says that authorising officer won’t be automatically SMS user. therefore, can authorise a solicitor as a level 1 user and assign CoS to my brother with disclose in the notes field in app
