How long should I keep records for?

One of the most common questions that customers ask us is “How long should I keep my records for?” It can be confusing working out which documents you need to keep and which documents to send for shredding.

At Hungry Shredder we like to keep things simple but we do advise customers to obtain professional advice (for example, from your solicitor or accountant) regarding record keeping as it will depend on your individual circumstances.

Here are a few links we have found to guidance on record keeping from the UK Government. We hope that you find them helpful!
