OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS AND PAPERWORK
You may be asked to provide various documents from different sources. Including:
Council tax bills
Letters from the Home Office
Letters from school or employment
It is important all paperwork you submit is clear, straight and the full page.
Some documents will specify the paperwork must be on 'headed paper'
This means the document is official and from a trusted source.
This is an example of a home office letter on their official headed paper.
Headed paper often includes the logo, address, and contact details of the sender.
This is also a good example of a scan, the text is clear and you can see the full page of the document.
This is an example of an internet utility bill.
Make sure the document includes your address, and the bill date.
These are examples of good and bad scans of bank statements.
This scan is good because:
The whole document is visible
The text is clear
There is contrast between white background and black text
It is straight
You can see all the information: date, names, numbers
This scan is bad because:
It is not straight
Parts of the document are missing
