Further reduction to SIA licence fee

NEWS

23 Apr, 2020

To ensure that the SIA (Security Industry Authority) does not hold unnecessary reserves, it has made a further reduction to the fee it charges for individual licence applications.

From 1 April 2020 individual licences for all security industry sectors have been reduced in price by £20, from £210 to £190. The reduction applies to both new applicants and those renewing existing licences. Licence holders applying for an additional licence after this date will pay 50% of the new reduced fee.

The SIA is committed to ensuring value for money. This further reduction will be applied over a number of years, during which time the SIA will continue to work hard to improve its efficiency. This will enable it to hold the licence application fee at the lowest level possible.

Says SIA chair Elizabeth France, ‘Our aim is to be as efficient as possible and provide the best value for money for those we regulate. I am pleased to announce this reduction, which brings the fee down to the level it was at 16 years ago when licensing was first introduced.’
