Default Banks statements and payslips posted vs printed

Hello -

Will the Home Office now accept bank statements or payslips printed on a laser printer versus ones that came in the post? My payslips are not available through the post, but I might be able to ask my bank to post past bank statements.

TIA,
Pallykin

I haven't noticed anyone here on this forum talking about using only unverified printouts of downloaded statements, but I've read elsewhere (e.g. https://www.carterthomas.co.uk/2018/...-applications/) that these can now be originals or copies - apparently this is an interpretation of these changes to the immigration rules.

Hopefully someone else here might be able to confirm they've made a successful application using only copies?

I guess if the printed downloads are indistinguishable from those you'd get by post, you can have some confidence that using them won't cause an issue, as apart from passports, most people no longer seem to be actually asked to provide any actual paperwork if it has been uploaded successfully.

If you can get your bank to post paper statements and/or stamp your printouts in time before your appointment, then it’s better to do so to likely reduce the chances of additional verification checks being carried out by the Home Office.

With regards to payslips, mine were printed and scanned, and accompanied by a letter from my employer verifying their authenticity as well as confirming that original payslips are only provided digitally via email.

By "these" changes did you mean items 6A.21 to 6A.26 on pages 15 & 16 ?

By "these" I was just referring to that whole set of changes - I haven't personally gone through and compared them with the previous immigration rules.
