Lots of clients are getting the ICO Data Protection Fee letters which is fair enough, but client's are asking me if they need to pay........
I'm pointing them in the direction of the the ico.org.uk/fee-checker but they still seem to want my opinion (seem to be first port of call for absoultely anything these days!).
Several companies are consultants (non IR35)/freelancers and my thoughts are that almost all should be registered.
The letters are worded very much to encourage £40 payment rather than risk a £4k fine so this seems to be a revenue raising exercise through fear of fines.
Are other's providing further guidence to clients on this?
