Hi thank you for your question.
As you were fined for shop lifting 13 years ago your offence has now been spent.
You do not have to give details of any offences which are "spent" under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974. Under that Act certain convictions may be regarded as "spent" in the United Kingdom after certain periods of time from the date of conviction if you have not been convicted of other offences during that time. "Spent" means that it will be ignored.
As you were given a fine, community service/community punishment order
or compensation order your conviction would have been spend after 5 years, your application will not be effected.

I hope I have answered your question. If so, kindly click ACCEPT.
can you make my questions more clear please as I already know what you said. I am confused that;
3.6 Do you have any criminal convictions in the UK or any other country (including traffic offences) or any civiljudgements made against you?
- Is the answer of this question "NO" as I haven't done any other crime since?
- Or, the answer is "Yes" But don't need to give any further information as the 5 years past without any crime?
