For how many years should we keep old bank payslips, cheque book records, investment receipts, etc?
Have a query regarding storing past financial records related to banks and investments? Looking out for information regarding how many years they should be maintained ? Scroll through this page where our ISC experts have provided advice for your query.
Specifically, my queries are-
1. Should I keep all whatever I found, or can I dispose of anything which is over five years old?
2. Should I keep only what is up to a maximum of three years old?
3. Should I keep PPF receipts of all the past years, irrespective of how many years back they are?
4. Are there any other really important bank-related or investment-related documents I would need to retain, other than those which I have mentioned?
