The ICO has started a campaign to contact every registered company to remind them to pay their data protection registration fee. I guess they will simply use the companies house register of live companies and contact every company that has not already registered. This is a pretty simple process and will be easy for the ICO to identify miscreants. Don’t risk getting a fine. The ICO will probably give you a warning for the first time, but it’s entirely in their powers to issue a fine simply for failing to register. Do it now!

Under the Data Protection Act 2018 organisations processing personal information are required to pay a data protection fee unless they are exempt. You can quickly and easily find out if your organisation needs to pay the fee by using the ICO self-assessment checker, but if you hold personal information for business purposes on any electronic device, including using CCTV for crime prevention purposes, it is likely an annual fee payment is due.
