Legal, Tax and Health and Safety advice for businesses on the agenda at free BSIA seminar

by Brian Sims

Two Associate members of the British Security Industry Association have joined forces to offer exclusive advice on employment law, Health and Safety and taxation at a brand new event set to take place at Windsor Racecourse on Tuesday 9 September. Jointly organised by employment law specialist Citation and tax expert Cobia, the British Security Industry Association’s (BSIA) event aims to share advice and Best Practice among both small and medium-sized businesses on a range of issues (including employment law, tax planning and Health and Safety). From dismissing poor performers without risk of tribunal claims through to enhancing a business’ operating margin, Cobia and Citation’s experts will be on hand to provide delegates with the basic information they need to improve their company’s health, safety and legal compliance processes. Daren Wood (pictured), membership manager at the BSIA, commented:” Many small businesses simply don’t have the in-house knowledge or resources to dedicate to dedicate a specific focus on areas like optimising taxation, Health and Safety and legal compliance. As such, the advice of independent experts such as Cobia and Citation can prove vital in helping small businesses to thrive.” Free to attend, the event is designed to provide maximum benefit with minimum interruption to the working day. Formatted as a breakfast briefing, the seminar is set to run from 8.30 am until 10.30 am and is being held at a venue that’s within easy reach of the South East’s motorway network. Key advice for businesses James Doyle of Cobia explained:” Cobia will inform delegates of the latest opportunities to plan their employment taxes in an efficient manner, as well as covering general practice across the security industry and the benefits available to their businesses.” Doyle went on to state:” Cobia has vast experience of working across the security industry in payroll, pensions and employment tax planning. Our clients include the OCS Group, Initial Facilities and Kingdom Security as well as at least 50 SME organisations. Cobia also works closely with the Security Industry Authority to help deliver Best Practice specifically around matters of employment status.” Introducing Citation’s offering, national partnerships manager Nigel Lea said:” Citation has worked with clients across the security sector since our inception in 1995. We’ve worked with the BSIA for a number of years now, helping the Trade Association’s members with the highly regulated areas of Health and Safety and employment law. Wrong moves in these areas can prove costly and really damage a business. Getting it right can increase efficiencies, help a company win business and improve the bottom line.” Lea continued:” We’re delighted to be involved with this event as it affords BSIA members a chance to see how our sector-specific services can not only help their own business, but also ways in which the BSIA is committed to putting the best member benefits possible in front of them.” The event is open to all businesses working within the security sector, including non-members of the BSIA.
