Financial Accounts Managers

Duncan Lewis Business Immigration Solicitors – Financial Accounts Managers – UK Visa Applications


Recruiting high-calibre financial accounts managers in an increasingly competitive global market can prove challenging for both private sector and public sector firms.


Restrictions on Tier 2 visas and a buoyant international recruitment market can prove a challenge to meeting recruitment targets and appointing financial accounts managers with the right background and expertise to take UK businesses forward successfully.


Duncan Lewis business immigration solicitors can advise companies on the international recruitment of financial accounts managers, who are eligible to work in the UK under the regulations covering occupations skilled to NQF Level 6.


Duncan Lewis business immigration lawyers frequently advise financial professionals and companies on Tier 2 applications – as well as advising on recruiting recent overseas graduates who have qualified in the UK.


Any Tier 2 applicants can be sponsored for jobs in certain occupations – and the government has drawn up a list of eligible occupations for financial accounts managers wishing to apply for a Tier 2 visa to take up a position in the UK.


UK Visas & Immigration regulations set out in the Codes of Practice for Skilled Workers such as financial accounts managers.


Under the regulations, the sort of roles within a company that would be eligible for a Tier 2 visa application include:

  • Accounts manager
  • Audit manager
  • Credit manager
  • Fund manager
  • Relationship manager (bank).


UK Visas & Immigration rules also set out the types of duties a financial accounts manager role might involve to qualify for a Tier 2 visa, including:


  • develops and manages business accounts to increase sales of financial products
  • takes responsibility for the efficient and effective operation of several business accounts
  • manages teams handling insurance claims
  • checks customers’ credit rating with banks and credit reference agencies, and decides whether to offer credit
  • establishes terms of credit and ensures timely payment by customer, renegotiates payment terms and initiates legal action to recover debts if necessary
  • carries out and/or supervises general accounting and administrative work.


The current minimum salary range for a financial accounts manager applying for a Tier 2 UK visa would be £24,700 for an experienced member of staff – and £20,500 for a new entrant, or £18,300 for applicants who entered Tier 2 under the Rules in place before 6 April 2011 and are not subject to the experienced worker rate.
