Protecting your important business documents

Store your important documents in a safe and reliable location

Archive storage for important business documents

Keeping your business documents is of utmost importance as they serve as a vital record of your operations, transactions, and interactions with clients. While it may seem overwhelming to retain a multitude of records, including client and accountancy documents, it is a necessary practice to ensure legal compliance and facilitate smooth business operations.

The general guideline for retaining client and accountancy records is a minimum of six years. This timeframe allows for the fulfilment of various legal requirements, including tax regulations and potential audits. By maintaining these records, you create a comprehensive and reliable historical trail of your business’s financial activities, which can be crucial in the event of disputes, investigations, or compliance inquiries.

However, the accumulation of business documents can quickly lead to an overwhelming amount of paperwork. Especially for businesses with limited physical space, storing all the necessary documents on-site becomes impractical and burdensome. It can hamper productivity, impede workflow, and potentially expose sensitive information to risks such as loss, theft, or damage.
