Are faxes/scanned emailed documents now as valid as an original copy ? I ask because I am currently working abroad and find most UK companies accept emails, scanned documents, faxes etc to process my requests.
One however is adamant that an original is needed. There was a time limit on the request so I scanned a document and emailed it. They are adamant that the original is needed but the scanned document is sufficient to satisfy the time limit.
Does anyone have any similar experiences around this area.
