How to do a compliance check: returning records
During your check you may have received data from a person that you will have kept safe. At the end of your check you need to return the data to the person.
Guidance about data security is on the Security & Information Zone’s Protecting information page. There is further information in the leaflet Security & Business Continuity Basics for all HMRC Staff.
For caseworkers in Individuals and Small Business Compliance (ISBC) or Wealthy and Mid-sized Business Compliance (WMBC) see also Guidance for dealing with Customers paper based records, which tells you about
- recording receipt of data
- storage of data
- loss or damage and
- returning data to the person.
