Reimbursing staff for the cost of the EU Settled Status scheme

25 January 2019

In the December Employer Bulletin, the process for any employers choosing to reimburse the £65 fee for settled status was highlighted. Payment of this fee has since been rescinded by government.

On 21 January 2019 – Theresa May announced that the £65 fee would be scrapped for those millions of EU citizens who were going to have to pay to secure the right to continue living in the UK after Brexit. This announcement followed the defeat of the Prime Minister’s withdrawal agreement in the House of Commons.
