Information commissioner fines accountant

Slap on the wrist

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Information Commissioner has fined an accountant for not registering with the authority a record of the personal information it keeps about its clients.

Acorn Accounting Limited of Leeds was fined £300 and £150 costs by Leeds Magistrates Court for failing to notify the IC under the Data Protection Act (1998).

According to a statement by the IC, it had been mithering Acorn to register for two years, and even sent someone knocking.

Acorn employees Ashfaq Anjum, Yusuf Badat and Asud Iqbal pleaded guilty to offences under Section 17 of the Act. They were each fined £200 and £150 costs.

The IC has been getting a little testy with accountants not registering the personal data they hold about their clients. It has been trying to get at them through the accounting trade press with warnings that it will prosecute those who ignore its reminders to register.®
