Professional services organisation KPMG hopes to better assist companies affected by changes to foreign worker laws after acquiring the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of WA’s migration services division for an undisclosed sum.

The Migration Services division is a commercial unit of CCI, specialising in corporate immigration consulting.

Its services include establishment of business sponsorship arrangements, managing Australian visa applications for employer sponsored temporary and permanent residence applications, negotiating labour agreements, and consulting to business on sponsorship obligations and undertakings.

“The government’s decision to abolish and replace the long-established Temporary 457 Work visa with a new Temporary Skills Shortage visa from March next year poses a considerable challenge to companies – multinational enterprises in particular – who need to bring in skilled staff and move people around between countries to address their requirements in different markets,” KPMG head of immigration Michael Wall said.

KPMG is well placed to assist companies navigate through the complexities and challenges arising from these recently announced changes.

“Through our global network, we can also help businesses seeking to expand into offshore markets to manage their outbound visa and tax requirements.”

The value of the acquisition was not disclosed.
