Certified copy of print out
 
Hi Everyone,

Do I still need to have a certified copy of documents printed from the internet?

Example my online bank statements, online power and water bill.

the name of the provider and bank are still on the printed copy, so do I need to print and photocopy the let it certify?

Thanks you very much

No, you do not need to certify printouts of online utility bills or bank statements. The only documents you need to certify are ID such as passports, birth/marriage certificates etc and your stat decs need to be witnessed.
I don't know about photocopies of original bank statements that were mailed to you, but I suspect even if you photocopied them and didn't certify it would still be okay.

My migration agent got me to get mine certified as the general rule is anything that is prepared by someone else ie. bank etc should be certified.

So Mish, you mean after printing out the documents, you then photocopied it again and had it certify?

I don't mind doing that, I'm just sorry for the JP who needs to certify multiple documents.

I printed off 2 copies and showed them to the JP who witnessed one of them as being exactly the same. It is no issue for us in Australian getting documents certified as it is a free service. Also where I work we have alot of people who are JP's so they don't mind how much you give them to certify, so maybe you have JP's at your work :)

I sent my payment summary from the last 2 or 3 years, but you can also send in your tax return or payslips. If payslips I would send it maybe 3 or 4, one from beginning, one middle and one recent. Also I blacked out my TFN before photocopying and getting my payment summary certified just to be on the safe side. You don't know where or who will end up seeing your TFN and last thing you need it fraudulent activity on it.
