What to do with BRP after getting British passport?

I have been naturalised and received my British passport today. What do I do with my BRP? I thought they might send a letter asking me to return it, but I haven't received any instructions.

Thanks lots!

Re: Naturalisation (FPN Fixed Penalty Notice URGENT)

FPNs and PCNs are only considered if numerous in last 12 months. If that was just one FPN not delivered via court then no need to worry. Whether that should be declared or not ? I am not sure either. Read the guidance, it says that FPNs and PCNs don't normally affect the outcome of application but ...

Re: Employment history - employee / limited company

You have to complete your employment history. If any part of that employment history was "self-employed", you need to provide tax documents as per the guidelines. Or to put it another way, they aren't just asking about your current employment.

FPN for speeding = civil penalty

Just called the UKBA Nationality Helpline (https://www.gov.uk/contact-ukvi/british-citizenship-and-nationality) for advice regarding Fixed Penalty Notices for speeding (assuming, as in my case, that it was settled with a fine and didn't go to court).

Re: Employment history - employee / limited company

For anyone checking this thread, I just called the UKBA Nationality Helpline (https://www.gov.uk/contact-ukvi/british ... ationality) and they said if any part of the period leading to ILR was "self-employed", you need to provide evidence from HMRC for that period.
