179.—(1) This Rule applies in any case where information in a prescribed form is required by the Rules to be sent by any person to the Secretary of State or a postal administrator, or a copy of a prescribed form is to be sent to the registrar of companies.

(2) A requirement of the kind mentioned in paragraph (1) of this Rule is treated as having been satisfied where—

(a)the information is submitted electronically with the agreement of the person to whom the information is sent;

(b)the form in which the electronic submission is made satisfies the requirements of the person to whom the information is sent (which may include a requirement that the information supplied can be reproduced in the format of the prescribed form);

(c)that all the information required to be given in the prescribed form is provided in the electronic submission; and

(d)the person to whom the information is sent can provide in legible form the information so submitted.

(3) Where information in a prescribed form is permitted to be sent electronically under paragraph (2) of this Rule, any requirement in the prescribed form that the prescribed form be accompanied by a signature is taken to be satisfied—

(a)if the identity of the person who is supplying the information in the prescribed form and whose signature is required is confirmed in a manner specified by the recipient, or

(b)where no such manner has been specified by the recipient, if the communication contains or is accompanied by a statement of the identity of the person who is providing the information in the prescribed form, and the recipient has no reason to doubt the truth of that statement.

(4) Where information required in prescribed form has been supplied to a person, whether or not it has been supplied electronically in accordance with paragraph (2) of this Rule, and a copy of that information is required to be supplied to another person falling within paragraph (1) of this Rule, the requirements contained in paragraph (2) of this Rule apply in respect of the supply of the copy to that other person, as they apply in respect of the original.
