Have you paid your Data Protection Fee?
From 25 May 2018, the Data Protection (Charges and Information) Regulations 2018 requires every organisation or sole trader who processes personal information to pay a data protection fee to the ICO, unless they are exempt.
How much does it cost?
The cost of your data protection fee depends on your size and turnover. There are three tiers of fee ranging from £40 and £2,900, but for most organisations it will be £40 or £60. The payment is always VAT:nil
You can use the ICO fee-assessment tool to find out how much you will need to pay.
Some organisations only pay £40 regardless of their size and turnover. These are:
- small occupational pension schemes; and
- organisations that have been in existence for less than one month.
