Abstract

Under Argentine law, the facsimile transmission (fax) is not acceptable under certain circumstances. A recent decision in “Flowtex France S.R.L. v. Flowtex Servicios Urbanos S.A.”, handed down by the National Court of Appeals on Commercial Matters, Chamber A, stated that “a simple photocopy of a fax is not enough proof of the existence of a loan contract”.

As background to this matter, the Argentine court ruled in an international case regarding a loan made by a French company to an Argentine company, with particular consideration of the facsimile as valid evidence in commercial proceedings.
