REMINDER: As previously reported on Datonomy (see below), from yesterday, 1 October 2009, a new notification fee of £500 applies to large organisations when they register as a data controller.
The new rate applies to data controllers with a turnover of £25.9 million and 250 or more
members of staff. It also applies to public bodies with 250 or more members of staff.
All other data controllers will remain in the lower tier category and will pay £35 per annum
unless they are exempt. Registered charities and small occupational pension schemes will
not come into the higher tier, regardless of their size and turnover, and will remain in the
lower-tier unless exempt from the requirement to notify altogether.
