Wet Signatures VS email approval

Newbie Registered Posts: 229 ? ? ?
Hi I am unsure if its acceptable to PI insurers or the AAT to email the engagement letter or LTD accounts and get an email from the client approving the terms or accounts, I do this for tax returns as we have IRmarks, what do others do, I tried calling my insurer Trafalgar but aparently you cant speak to anyone!! helpful.
Advice from other MIPS greatly appreciated

    I did some research a while back. It was all acceptable with the aat then and our insurers as long as we could prove it was signed by the client by keeping the email from the client. Adobe echosign logs the email address it was signed using so is acceptable.

    We now have 95% of our accounts, tax returns and loe's signed electronically

    I went to a West Midlands CIMA MIP session on Saturday and certainly echosign was the recommendation.
