Royal Mail increase Business Mail 2nd Class by an average of 3.91%

If your company has a PPI account with Royal Mail then you will see an average increase to your 2nd Class postage costs of 3.91%, and an average increase to your 1st Class postage of 4.02%.

If your company uses Franking machines you will now pay 6.38% more for standard tariff 1st Class and 12.12% more for standard tariff 2nd Class.  Whilst Franking is still less expensive than the price of stamps, it appears that the pricing is no longer aligned with Royal Mail PPI Account pricing.

I have added a quick table below to illustrate an extract of the increases that will come into force on the 31st March 2014 and how they compare to April 2013 pricing.
