Business Documents & Backups to Keep Off-Site
Losing information that your business needs could cost you. Whether by flood, fire, or theft, the loss of personal information, property, business information, or other important documents could halt any progress that your business has made, and cause you to start from scratch. Aside from that, you may also need to produce those documents for legal reasons, including any interactions that you have with government agencies such as the IRS, or with local law enforcement. These groups won't usually accept excuses in lieu of evidence, which is why it's vital that you keep any necessary documents either safe or backed up.
There's a long list of different documents that you may want to keep that will differ according to the type of business that you are running. You may need to keep records of inventory based on import if you deal heavily in that area, for example. You may also need to keep safety records for various chemicals that your business uses in production. You're most likely familiar with what these important documents might be, and why you will need to have them. Below, you'll find a list of more common documents that are used by businesses in nearly every industry.
Important Documents to Back Up:
Why is Back Up or Storage Necessary?
In the event of an emergency, those back-ups could help you to resume work in a much shorter amount of time than it would otherwise take you. You may also be able to prevent instances of theft of important documents by keeping them in storage. The same is true of information stored in cloud servers; most are encrypted and physically located across several remote servers, making internal theft or sabotage difficult without the right digital credentials for access.
The more information that you're able to store off-site, (and ideally stored in a secure cloud-based server) the more well insulated that you will be against theft, disaster, and much more. As your business grows, you'll find that these resources are actually indispensable. Author: Dick Wagner
