When running a business big or small, you must keep and record your receipts either in paper form or digital.

If the original form is paper, such as a receipt for a coffee, HMRC accept scanned copies.

Some minor exceptions

When you receive some documents that include a tax, that isn't VAT, for example bank interest certificates and dividend vouchers, these documents must be kept in their original form.
