GDPR

GDPR

Didn't find your answer?

So where do we stand generally as accountants in terms of clients sending us their books and records, payroll records, confidential customer records/details etc for us to prepare the accounts. Or, more specifically, where does the client stand on this.....in order for them to 'protect' their data do they then need to be sure we can also protect it once passed to us? How do they know we can protect it? Or once they have done their GDPR bit and passed it to us are they off the hook if there is a data leak by us? Or is the client supposed to be doing more in assessing us?! Thanks.

My understanding is thatwe need to have a GDPR compliant privacy policy, which explains how we protect data, and this should be reflected in updated engagement letters.

Yes, I'm leaving it to the last minute....

What about the data we receive that is nothing to do with finance? This week we have seen a Father’s Day card from ‘mum and bump’ and medical records re a heart condition. Previously we have had full correspondence and results from a paternity test. [***] prescription and unknown prescription drugs. Amongst other things.
