    Default Uh oh..have to pay £500 to register my business with ICO?

    Unfortunately I forgot to register myself for the data protection act and as I am trying to do it now, instead of paying £35 registration it's saying that if your business has been registered for over a month I have to pay £500?

    Any experience of this?

    I'm so awful having not done this before...

    It should be £35. It's a bit complicated but shouldn't be that much

    Don't do it online ring them up, it's £35 for chikdminders, so much easier on the phone.

    I did mine online and like you I didn't do it straight away as our la had advised us incorrectly but it only cost me £35 not £500

    It's only £35.

    When you go through the questions at the end it asks:

    7b. Does your organisation have more than 249 staff?
    Yes Go to 7c.
    No The fee for your organisation will be £35. Go to 8.

    When you go to question 8 it's the signature and date.

    You skip all the other options (7c-7e) where it says about having been registered for more than a year.
