The data will be stored while the client remains contracted to Valley Accountancy and will be held beyond this period for at least the legally required period by HMRC or other government agencies. The client has the right to request a copy of their data. The client also has the right to request that this data be deleted, although this right may be overridden by the legal requirement to retain the data for government agencies. In certain circumstances, HMRC have the ability to enquire into a taxpayer’s affairs beyond the normal statutory seven years. In view of this, it is our experience and policy that we will retain data without limit beyond seven years. If a client requests that we delete such data, subject to any other overriding requirement, we will comply with such a request.
