March 2014

Self Adhesive Sheet Printings issued March 2014

A tariff rate change occurred on 31st March 2014. Among the changes, basic second class rose from 50p to 53p and basic first class from 60p to 62p.

Also, the Post & Go standard tariff rates changed - both Worldwide 10g and Worldwide 40g labels were dropped. These were replaced by new rates - Europe 60g and Worldwide 60g. Some confusion surrounded the Worldwide 10g rate as this was not included in the Royal Mail price card - Our Prices. The 'Europe 20g' label text was to be modified to Euro 20g / World 10g to cater for this rate. This was meant to occur on the 28th April 2014, in the event, only the BPMA machine was modified on this date. The NCR machines were not modified until 5th June 2014 while the Wincor machines were not modified until mid October 2014.
