Record Keeping and Suggested Methods
There is a legal requirement for you to keep records. Generally you should keep records for 2 years after the tax year end- 6 years if you have income from property or self-employment.
There are many different ways to keep records. Probably the easiest way is in an analysis book or computer spreadsheet format- do remember to make regular backup copies if you use the latter method!
Where possible, receipts should be retained. If this is not possible, for example because they are submitted to the PCC for reimbursement, please note your records to this effect.
