Quite simply it is a statutory obligation in most cases. If your premises are open to the public pubs, schools, cinemas, clubs, churches, dentists, doctors surgeries etc then you most likely need to be inspected yearly. If you are a private dwelling then you should be tested at least every 10 years. Electrical testing is often overlooked by ignorance, many companies now delegate the responsibility to either their own resources manager or a dedicated company.
