Records storage. You have to keep personal and business records for the Canada Revenue Agency. It’s a bit confusing, but their website does lay out how long you have to keep your paper for.
The fast answer is 6 years. But then you have to make sure you get the time period right because it’s six years from the end of the last tax year they relate to. For a corporation, this is the fiscal period, for an individual it’s the calendar year. Then, there’s all kinds of exceptions, so make sure you read the whole website.
Either way, you have to keep your records. And even if you have a really small business, those records take up boxes, which take up room. When you’re done using those boxes as a table for more paper, and you need some space back, we have the answer for you: an 8’x8’, 5'x10', 5'x18, or an 8’x20’ unit with sturdy shelving (ask us about this!). The best part about our 8’x8’ and 8’x20’ units (which are offering at our Milton self-storage facility, and are drive up) is that they are high, and you can get shelves delivered to your storage unit, fill them with boxes and use the entire space.
