HOW LONG TO KEEP BUSINESS FINANCIAL RECORDS?
Your business needs a record retention schedule that reflects your particular needs. Your records management holding time varies with each type of record you store. For example, titles and receipts for large equipment are kept as long as you own the equipment. Contracts and other legal agreements may be kept for a particular number of years after they are completed. Tax records and the supporting invoices and related documents might be retained for seven years. 80% of emails might be purged every six months.
Once the specific amount of time has expired, laws and good practice apply in discarding these records.
