Which archives need storing?
It’s an obvious starting point but one that will put you in a good place going forward. There are different reasons for keeping documentation safe. In some instances, it’s due to highly classified information, whereas others come with legal requirements. In addition to this, you may find you’ve plenty of access paperwork that just needs to be put through the shredder and thrown out!
Ensure paperwork is all filed correctly
Rather than sticking everything in boxes and forgetting about it, as always, the initial organisation is key. In particular, if it’s the company finances or contractual agreements and such like. In which case, it’s all the more important to ensure you have files labelled clearly and easily accessible as and when required. Likewise, you’ll be wanting to keep a digital record. If you then number everything you can at least have an excel sheet to remind you what’s in which box.
