RSTP2038 - Meaning of 'business documents'

RSTPA guidance on the meaning of ‘business documents’.

Business documents are documents or copies of documents that:

  • relate to the carrying on of a business (see RSTP2036) by any person; and
  • are part of any person’s statutory records (see RSTP2030).

Both of these conditions must be met for a document to be a business document.

For any document that we inspect, we may:

  • take a copy of it;
  • make an extract from it; or
  • remove it,

to the same extent as if we had requested the document under an information notice (see RSTP2002).
