The Private Security Regulatory Authority (PSRA) has initiated a comprehensive campaign aimed at ensuring compliance with taxation regulations for club bouncers and various security personnel.
This move is in line with Sections 21 and 28 of the Private Security Regulation Act, mandating the vetting, registration, and licensing of private security service providers.
PSRA has since unveiled a mandatory nationwide initiative encompassing the security vetting, training, and licensing of several security roles.
“In this regard, the Authority has organized a sensitization forum at the Sarova Stanley Hotel on Wednesday, 17th January 2024 at 8:30 A.M,” said the regulator in a letter dated January 8, 2024.
These include bouncers, bodyguards, event stewards, door supervisors, event security personnel, VIP protection officers, close protection personnel, and crowd control security personnel.
As part of the sensitization efforts, the PSRA is conducting a forum designed to disseminate information regarding these regulations.
The forum, which is free of charge, aims to educate and inform security service providers about the necessity of complying with tax obligations. To streamline attendance, participants are encouraged to confirm their presence through the provided email address.
PSRA said it’s committed to enforcing taxation compliance within the private security sector for all individuals involved in security roles abide in light of the requisite legal and regulatory frameworks.
