• All documents should be kept in line with legal retention timescales – US 5 years. Information can be useful from statements, signatures, cheques, loan documentation, correspondence etc. Ensure that important documents are not lost, altered or destroyed. You can send a memo informing staff of the retention requirement, however, if this might prompt someone to destroy or alter documents, deal with that separately.
