VAT Receipts

I just wanted to check that it's ok to claim VAT back from copy invoices. I have a lot of scenarios where things paid on the company creditcard aren't supported with a VAT receipt/invoice but upon calling the company they send a copy invoice.

Also have a similar situation where Direct debits debit the bank account but the invoices have been lost in the post/or are on someones desk!! Again in this instance can you call the company and claim the VAT back from a copy invoice or can you ony claim from an original receipt/invoice?

    yes its fine to use copy invoices we do it all the time both faxed and e-mailed as they are always getting sent to the staff and never passed to us
