    Round table discussion about the Migration Advisory Committee call to evidence on salary thresholds

The Home Secretary has commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) to reassess planned salary thresholds of £30,000 for migrants, which are set to take effect from 2021. The independent body had previously recommended the threshold should be set at £30,000 or the 25th percentile of the occupation’s pay distribution, whichever is highest (though there are exceptions for new entrants and some public sector workers).

The MAC has now been asked to consider the range at which the salary threshold should be set at, the mechanism for calculating them, whether there is a case for regional thresholds for different parts of the UK, and if there should be exceptions to salary thresholds in certain circumstances.

The MAC is expected to report back by January 2020 and will now begin to issue a 12 week call for evidence. As part of the call for evidence techUK will be holding a round table discussion to gather members views on the issues outlined here on Tuesday 23 July, 10:00-11:30 at techUK, 10 St Bride Street, London, EC4A 4AD.
