I am a director where I am planning to apply for sponsorship licence. I found that in the guidance says SMS user cant 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 wont be automitically SMS user. therefore can assign solicitor as a level 1 user and assign CoS to my brother with disclose in the notes field in application of COS.
