A fax cover sheet, also known as a fax cover letter, is a document that is sent with a fax to provide additional information. It includes details about the recipient, the sender, and the contents of the fax.
The details provided usually include the sender’s name and contact information, the name and contact details of the recipient, the subject of the fax, the date, and other special instructions (eg. requests for reply).
If it’s important to keep the contents of the fax private, the fax cover sheet can also include a confidentiality note.
