New Tariff Rates 2015 now active!

30th March 2015

Postal Tariff Price Comparison Table 2015

The postal tariff comparison below offers an illustration of the new April 2015 tariffs for postage stamps, franking and MailMark. The comparison table sets out to illustrate the huge cost savings that are now availble if you frank your mail. The postage tariffs for customers who are already using a postal franking machine are described as meter rates, therefore please pay particular attention to the columns headed 1st or 2nd class franking. A simple calculation would that you should expect to save 17% off every 1st class letter and 28% off every 2nd class letter. Not only that but if your franking machine features MailMark then you should expect a 19% saving off every 1st class letter and a whopping 33% saving off every 2nd class letter!

VAT on Postal Services

10th August 2012

As part of the budget on Wednesday 24 March 2010, the Government announced plans to introduce VAT on some postal products and services from Monday 31 January 2011. This follows a legal challenge to the VAT exempt status of Royal Mail services and a ruling by the European Court of Justice on the services that can remain VAT exempt. The overwhelming majority of postal customers will be unaffected by the Government’s proposed changes in VAT, First and Second Class stamped and meter (franked) mail, Standard parcels and the large majority of Royal Mail’s other services will continue to be exempt from VAT. A list of the Royal Mail services that remain exempt and a list of the small number of services that will be subject to VAT is available at www.royalmail.com/vat. This list is not totally exhaustive, but it includes Special Delivery 9am and International Airsure. Royal Mail and the franking meter industry are working together closely to implement this change in a way which provides the best possible service to customers. We will provide further information as soon as we can.
