    Now that I'm fully retired, I want to have a clear out, Mrs LS wants an extra filing cabinet drawer.

    I know that for HMRC, I should keep it for the previous 6 years, but what about SPS, BPS, NVZ and Cross Compliance? I rang the Defra helpline and was told 10 years, but I can't imagine that's right.

    If in doubt keep it. Have you still got the farm/ground? Other option would be to scan it and save on computer/memory stick if you've got time. Enjoy your retirement.

    No, I surrendered my tenancy in September 2017.

    If you want to prove something keep it.
    Otherwise they got to prove it.
    Like said stick on cloud if you get time ?

    The agent who sold my entitlements for me has told me 6 years, so that's what I'll do.

    I had a clear out yesterday of farmers weeklys 2004 - 2008! Many of the front page pictures and headlines could easily have been written today! But joy of joys I also stumbled across my Arsenal vs Liverpool 1979 Charity Shield programme that somehow had become lodged in same pile of papers.
