While everyone else is enjoying the fun, security staff are working hard to ensure that summer events run smoothly and safely. Are you claiming all the tax relief to which you’re entitled?

Summer is the season of outdoor entertainment, from top music concerts to family fun days in the sun. August sees the Reading and Leeds, Bestival and Creamfields festivals, to name just a few and there will be a lot of fantastic memories made at these high profile events.

None of this would be possible, though, without the ranks of security staff who keep the events running. If you’re a member of that industry, you’ll know how much dedication and professionalism is required to ensure everyone has a great time, while protecting the safety and wellbeing of every person onsite.

So, it’s important to make sure that your hard work isn’t rewarded by paying too much tax. There are several legitimate business expenses that you could claim tax relief against, including the cost of licences such as SIA and Public Space Surveillance.

Many security personnel travel to event sites at their own expense, with little or no reimbursement from their employers. Did you know that you can claim a tax refund for the cost of travelling in your own vehicle or on public transport?

You don’t need to worry about a tax refund claim being a hassle, though – you can simply send all your paperwork to us or ask about our ‘business by telephone’ service, so we can take care of everything for you.

Then you can get back to doing your essential job and making sure that everyone enjoys a sizzling summer of entertainment.
