The government have announced the Royal Mail is to be privatised and Royal Mail is to be sold through floatation on the London Stock Exchange.

Privatisation of the Royal Mail will still ensure that business customers will be able to achieve a discount of 34% on franked mail compared with stamped post.  SMART franking machine users will be at an advantage to ensure that any changes will automatically apply to their machines.

George Carrington, Director of Ashcroft commented; “This is positive news for the Royal Mail and Franking Machine Users.  Franked mail will still continue to be an advantage to businesses to achieve the lowest postal costs.”
