Have you paid your ICO fee?

The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has begun issuing fines to companies for failure to pay their mandatory data protection fee, with the business services, construction and finance sectors being some of the first.

Any company that processes personal data, regardless of size, must be registered with the ICO and pay the annual fee, unless they are exempt. To find out if you’re exempt, please visit www.ico.org.uk. Fines for not paying the fee can be up to £4,350.

ICO’s Deputy CEO, Paul Arnold, said:

“Following numerous attempts to collect the fees via our robust collection process, we are now left with no option but to issue fines to these organisations. They must now pay these fines within 28 days or risk further legal action.

You are breaking the law if you process personal data or are responsible for processing it and do not pay the data protection fee to the ICO. We produce lots of guidance for organisations on our website to help them decide whether they need to pay and how they can do this.”

The fees and fines are as follows:

Tier 1 – micro organisations. Maximum turnover of £632,000 or no more than ten employees.
Fee: £40. Fine: £400.

Tier 2 – SMEs. Maximum turnover of £36m or no more than 250 employees.
Fee: £60. Fine: £600.

Tier 3 – large organisations. Those not meeting the criteria of Tiers 1 or 2.
Fee: £2,900. Fine: £4,000.

Find out if you are registered here and you can register with the ICO here if you’re not already.
