We were warned in advance that Royal Mail were to increase there tariffs in April 2011 by a whopping 10%. it has now been confirmed that price rises will go across the board on all RM services by up to 13%.
There should be 3 or 4 new values added to the list of counter sheets come April. Just a quick look at how it will affect some of the stamp prices.
1st class up 5p to 46p
2nd class up 4p to 36p
Large 1st up 9p to 75p
Large 2nd up 7p to 58p
SD up to 100g up 40p to £5.45
Does this mean that your collection of mint NVIs have risen in value? With interest rates still set at 0.5% it could be better to save stamps rather than cash !!
