Sharing your personal data


What categories of personal data do we have about you?


Where we have obtained your personal data from you, you will be aware of the data provided to us.  


The purpose(s) for which we use your personal data and the lawful basis for such processing.


Under data protection law we are required to provide you with information on the purposes for which we process your personal data and the lawful basis (or more than one), under data protection law, that applies to that processing. 


We have set this information out below:


Management of your account with us - Kemp Accounts Limited may use your personal data for the following purposes:


  • to carry out, manage and administer our contractual obligations towards you under your contract of account with us;
  • to exercise our rights and meet our obligations in the field of accounting;
  • to meet our legal obligations including complying with our HMRC obligations and ensuring the payments are taxed and subject to national insurance deductions in the correct way; and
  • where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.


Our processing is based primarily on the lawful processing conditions of Necessity and Legal Compliance (explained below).

Consent: means that you, the “data subject”, have given us your consent to the processing of your personal data for one or more specific purposes.  

Where we process your personal data on the basis of Consent you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time.

Necessity: means that the processing we carry out is necessary for the performance of a contract we have with you or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you.

Legal Compliance: means that the processing we carry out is necessary for compliance by us with a legal obligation placed on us. 

Legitimate Interests: means that the processing of your personal data is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests or by a third party and those interests are considered to be sufficient to override your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of your personal data.

Vital Interests: means that the processing of your personal data is being undertaken to protect your vital interests (normally your health and safety in an emergency or incident situation) or that of another person and where such processing applies to special categories of personal data e.g. health data about you, where you are not capable legally or physically of giving your consent.


Where we rely on Necessity or Legal Compliance


If you fail to provide certain personal information when requested or otherwise object or seek to restrict our ability to process your personal data under these lawful processing conditions, we may not be able to perform the contract we have entered into with you (such as paying you or providing a benefit), or we may be prevented from complying with our legal obligations (such as to ensure the health and safety of our workers and social security laws). 


We do not share your information with any third party company or organisation other than those listed below and for the purposes stipulated:


  • HM Revenue and Customs for taxation and social security administration purposes.
  • Local Councils and other government function as required by law.
  • Our insurers where necessary in connection with our insurance cover and provision.
  • We may transfer your personal information to a third party as otherwise permitted by UK Data Protection Law, for example to our legal advisors or in order to comply with a legal requirement or obligation placed on us by law.  


Processing Activities  - How long will you keep my personal data for?


Retention of data is subject to the length of the account/contract that you have with Kemp Accounts Limited and will be compliant with any HMRC guidelines stipulate. For further clarification please with


The accuracy of your information is important to us.
