Why Join the ILTSA?

As the only recognised qualifying body in the UK, membership of the ILTSA gives you professional credibility.

The letters M.I.L.S.A. and F.I.L.S.A. have become recognised as a sign of quality by discerning clients and your connection with the Institute will benefit you in other ways including:

  • Free online promotion of your business through our stock auditor website pages
  • As a qualified member you will benefit from the recognition of The Institute of Chartered Accountants (through its guidelines, and in particular SAS 520) that the figures they supply are acceptable for auditing purposes.
  • You will have access to the expertise and the facilities of the Institute.
  • You will have access to the Institute's strong support and limited legal representation. In two recent cases we successfully represented our members against spurious claims for damages.
  • You will be part of a nationwide network of competent stock auditors who can be called upon to handle large corporate accounts.
  • You will be able to participate in a growing number of group schemes that are designed to save our membership money. For instance the AA scheme that has been run by the Institute for many years virtually saves your subscription each year.
  • You will receive our quarterly magazine ‘Stock Auditor’ which keeps you up to date with developments in our profession.
  • Through the regional representative scheme holiday and illness cover can be swiftly implemented
