VAT on Royal Mail Services

From 2nd April 2012 a wider range of Royal Mail services will be VAT liable. Many bulk mail products that attract volume postage discounts will no longer be price controlled and regulated, so will therefore be liable to VAT. Royal Mail wrote to customers in January 2012 to inform about changes in the way their services are regulated following the Postal Services Act 2011. This has affected the VAT status of a number of Royal Mail products.

Use a Smart Franking Machine to Reclaim VAT

VAT services will only be available on Franking Machines with Smart technology. Neopost Franking Machines models with the designation beginning 'IS' are Smart Franking Machines. These machines frank at VAT-inclusive prices and allow reclaiming of VAT through production of a VAT invoice that is acceptable to HMRC. All other model designations are non-smart meter and therefore are incapable of processing VAT liable mail.
