Can I use receipts if they're not the original?


I'm just wondering if its ok for me to use receipts that aren't the original?

Many of my clients email me photos of their receipts and then post them to me at their earliest convenience. The receipts are mainly petrol related.

Would the emails be enough for the taxman without my clients having to post them to me too?

How's about an intro before we start- we always ask newbies. Usual stuff - what prof body do you belong to, do you work for yourself or in a practice/ firm, are you a bookkeeper or accountant, what qualifications, how long in role, where up to in your studies-what exams passed/with what body/in midst of doing, where based, what you did before this role? Who is your MLR cover with?That sort of thing. Helps get to know you but also how best to pitch answers.

Also - pls add your first name so that it appears under the signature bar on your posts via Edit profile --->signatures

Thoughts are my own/not to be regarded as official advice,which should be sought from a suitably qualified Accountant.
