Well it’s the start of another tax year and talking about tax if your company or organisation is liable for Corporation Tax, you must keep and retain adequate business and accounting records. You must normally retain these records for at least 6 years from the end of your Corporation Tax accounting period – that’s a long time.
We can help you store company records with Simple Storage, securely and offer great rates on our archiving services from archive box storage to document retrieval. We can copy documents at your request, scan, email or fax – simply let us know what you need us to do and we’ll get your records over to you in good time. Our archive rooms are safe, secure and well lit. Alternatively you can take out one of our self storage units on a long term basis and we’ll do you a great deal on the price.
Remember every company, whether or not they are trading must keep accounting records. An example of the business records that you may find useful to keep includes the following:
- Annual accounts, including your profit and loss statement and balance sheet
- Bank statements and paying-in slips
- A cash book and any other account books you keep
- Purchase and sales books or ledgers
- Invoices and any record of daily takings such as till rolls
- Order records and delivery notes
- A petty cash book
- Other relevant business correspondance
