Business Storage
Archive Storage

Paperwork remains an integral part of our daily professional routines, despite the increasing digitisation of transactions. Whether it's bills, invoices, sales records, receipts, or stacks of important notes, paperwork can accumulate over time, giving the impression of an untidy or disorganised office space.

While the temptation to declutter may arise, it's crucial to bear in mind that different types of records are subject to varying legal retention requirements.

Therefore, understanding these regulations and maintaining your records for the required duration, whether for audits, taxation purposes, or other legal matters, is paramount.

Where should you store these records?

Most of your archive materials can be securely stored in labelled boxes, organized either by year or by contents, depending on your business's needs. At Porterstore, we offer a secure indoor storage solution for your records. Our business archive storage facilities include:
  • A comprehensive selection of packing supplies
  • Convenient access for unloading trucks and shipping containers
  • Complimentary access to conference rooms
  • DHL pickup point
  • A dedicated small business mailing address
  • Distribution services spanning the UK and Ireland
  • Global product shipping capabilities, supported by an international agent network
  • Optional office spaces for hire
  • Hassle-free waste disposal services for products and packaging

How long should you retain records?

For sole traders and the self-employed, there is a shorter document retention period of 5 years, whereas limited companies are typically required to keep records for 6 years. However, it's advisable to preserve your records for at least 6 years, especially if there's a possibility of contract breach claims against you. For businesses operating in professions susceptible to professional negligence claims, maintaining records indefinitely may be necessary, given the nature of the industry.

Each of our commercial self-storage spaces is fully secure, enclosed, and continuously monitored by CCTV and remote surveillance.

Reserving a space with us is quick and convenient; simply make a reservation online and schedule a drop-off time for your items.
