Managing record keeping risks
There are legal and financial consequences if your business does not comply with record keeping requirements of tax, business and privacy laws.
Lost or damaged records
Recovering essential business records, whether they have been lost, damaged or destroyed, will help you to re-establish business operations.
Privacy and security
Australian privacy laws apply to the collection, use and storage of personal information. Customers will take their business elsewhere if they lack confidence in your ability to protect their personal information and records.
Read the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner's guide to privacy for small business to help you apply the national privacy principles.
