How long do limited companies need to keep company records?


We’ve just formed a limited company, and I’ve been told there are several records we need to keep hold of. Are there any rules out there relating to how long we keep each of these records?



Most company records need to be kept for a minimum of 6 years, including all accounting records, financial statements and tax records; however, minutes of meetings and copies of resolutions must be retained for at least 10 years, and statutory registers should be kept for the life of the company.
