Your Personal Data

If you choose to submit personal data or other information to TAP whether via this website or by another method, you agree to the use of such data in accordance with this privacy policy and our terms of business, which form the basis of our contract to provide services to you.

Any personal data or other information that may be provided to TAP by you on registration sections of this website or by another method or that may be provided to TAP by your other professional advisers or other third parties, will be held in confidence by TAP and will not be passed on to other product providers or service companies without your express permission.

Depending on the services we provide to you, we may input your personal data into specialist tax software and will then have shared that data with our tax software providers. We will also share your data with our staff, who will potentially include anyone who is a partner, employee or consultant for any of the TAP entities.

Your details may be used by us to send you information on other products and services that we offer and which we think might be relevant to your tax position.  For example, as tax rules change or planning opportunities arise, we might contact you to make you aware of those changes without you specifically asking us to do so.  If you prefer not to receive such information, please notify us by email to GDPR@taxadvisorypartnership.com.

Your personal data may be used to verify your identity with GB Group PLC, in order to ensure that TAP is compliant with KYC and anti-money laundering regulations.

Your Rights

We acknowledge and respect the rights you have under GDPR and will always take action if requested to do so by you.

Right of Access

You have the right at any time to ask us for a copy of the personal information that we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it. The data we hold will often include business and financial information from a number of sources and providing a copy can be time consuming.  We therefore reserve the right to charge for our time in complying with any such request.

Right of Correction or Completion

If personal information we hold about you is not accurate or is out of date and requires amendment or correction you have a right to have the data rectified or completed.

Right to Withdraw Consent

In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Upon receipt of any such request in writing, your personal data will be immediately deleted.

Right of Erasure

You have the right to request that all personal information we hold about you is erased for any reason. However as stated, the data we hold for you will often include business and financial information and any request for it to be erased should be carefully considered.

You have a separate responsibility to keep your business and financial records for at least 5 years after the 31 January submission deadline of the relevant tax year, which in practice can be equivalent to almost 7 calendar years. We recognise our role in assisting you by continuing to hold that information, so that it is readily available if needed in future.  If you exercise your right of erasure, then your personal information will be deleted and will be irretrievable.

Right of Data Portability

In certain instances, you have a right to receive any personal information that we hold about you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

In such circumstances, you can ask us to transmit that information to you or directly to a third party organisation.

While we are happy for such requests to be made, we are not able to guarantee technical compatibility with a third party organisation’s systems. We are also unable to comply with requests that relate to personal information of others without their consent.

You can exercise any of these rights at any time by contacting us at GDPR@taxadvisorypartnership.com.

Errors, omissions, interruptions and delays of services may occur at any time on the internet as it is not a totally reliable or secure medium of communication. TAP accepts no liability for the consistency, security and confidentiality of any information sent over the internet and any transmissions over the internet are entirely at the user’s risk.  Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
