Referring to membership…

Whilst looking for a Professional body to join in the security sector, as a company we researched a number of organisations and finally settled for membership with IPSA. This has proved to be a very good move on our part and we are highly delighted with the result. The communication with senior members and their associates plus the frequent updates relating to security issues and queries is second to none.

Referring to information distributed to members…

The IPSA are very good & are normally 1st with information. I always read your information bulletins & have picked up a lot of helpful information over the years.

Referring to our 24 hour legal help line…

Following the advice I received from the IPSA Legal Help line, which proved to be very useful, I was relieved to know that I would not be held responsible for any additional TAX on the monies stolen by an employee.

The FREE Legal Assistance advice included in my annual membership of IPSA, proved invaluable in that they were able to quote me chapter and verse of a Previous Case Study with HMRC which found that “Directors of a company that are victims of “Theft by an Employee” would not be liable to pay the tax on monies stolen, unless the Directors were party to any theft.

They also provided me with details of the case history and reference numbers.

Many thanks for your kind assistance in this matter, a very worthwhile add-on to the membership.

A new member after just one week…

I was recently commenting on the quality of some of your recent mailshots which were very good compared to other sites. I am pleased that I took the decision to join.
