French documents/paperwork... returning to UK so how much and how long to keep?


I will soon be returning to the UK so I am trying to drastically prune down my French paperwork files. Does anybody know how long I need to keep things like tax returns, business opening/closing paperwork, URSSAF and RSI/RAM demands, electricity/water/telephone bills, bank statements??

I'd prefer to just put the whole lot on the bonfire but that's probably not prudent!!

Thanks in advance. :)

Many thanks, Andrew.

Drat. I'll still need to keep a lot of papers then... :(

all explained here ;-)
