There will be new Royal Mail Fines introduced from the 2nd of January 2020. These Royal Mail fines, called ‘rework fees’ by the company, will imposed when you present your mail incorrectly.
If parcels handed to Royal Mail differ from what is stated on the Sales Order, they will correct the Sales Order to reflect what was given and impose Royal Mail Fines for any adjustments.
If Royal Mail find errors in the way parcels have been presented this will also attract Royal Mail Fines.
You will want to make sure that you stock up on bags, ties, labels, yorks, trays etc before you shut down for the Christmas Break. As the new Royal Mail fines kick in from the first working day back in the New Year, directly after the busiest trading period, it’s perhaps the time of year you’re most likely to run short on mailing stock and be forced to use the wrong colour bag or be missing a label.Adjustment Charge
