Keeping Old Paperwork

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.

No, I surrendered my tenancy in September 2017.

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.

I heard a nasty story the other day, someone being sued by a former employee from over 20 years ago for a long term health issue, and they (the employer) can't find a record of who the employers liability insurer was that far back, and they're on the hook for hundreds of thousands.

So the lesson is: keep your insurance documentation, forever!!!!

Interesting info. I'd have assumed that if you were defending a claim it would be via your current insurance and not related to a past policy.
 
I'm currently having to dig back to 1985 - 1990 onwards for costs of a barn conversion. Fortunately, the docs were not in the attic providing a cosy nest for ancient mice.

For any Tax query, CGT, IHT or proof, keep everything safe.
