The head has asked me to look into getting a fax machine that can also scan to a computer for the admin office. I haven't really delved into this area before so if any one can recommended any products would be much appreciated.
We have a bt fax line and the current fax machine is on its last legs. Would be connected to the computer via usb for the scanning side.

Not a recommendation per se, more a nudge in the right direction - a multifunction printer is probably more useful to the your purposes. We've got an Oki ES5460 set up in our finance office plugged in via network and phone line, and it can scan to USB stick or email, and fax out on the phone line. If you put it in place of an existing printer as well could save you a bit of space.

if a MFP is the way thats fine too but it cannot be networked as all the network ports are taken up in the office (to be honest it doesn't really need to be networked anyways). Please keep any more recommendations coming.

A MFP printer is what your looking for just use usb insted of the network connection and it will work fine just have a search on google for multifuntion printers we have one in our finance office and works fine both as a fax and printer also a scanner. we have the HP C2320nf but you can get some a lot cheaper depending if they need colour.

Also, if you have another device on the network you could use one of these: http://www.amazon.co.uk/CDL-Micro-RJ...ref=pd_cp_ce_3
I don't think I'd split a port used by a computer. (maybe if you have another network printer in the office split that port).
