Hike in post prices
So apparently the Royal Mail are about to jack prices up massively, as at 2 April. It appears franking accounts will be almost unaffected, just a few pence in fact, so I'm wondering...
We buy postage electronically and then print labels with a RM program through the pc and printer. Is that us franking? I'm not in the admin dept, but they seemed to think this wasn't franking (and they should know!), but I feel otherwise (instead of pushing envelopes through a machine we are putting stickers on them, surely that is franking by another name?).
Basically if the choice is we get a franking machine or pay double for our postage, I think we will need to price up machines. But if we already have a franking machine we don't need to.
