Annual Licence Fees
Postal licence fees are calculated on the basis of costs directly attributed to regulating the postal industry in each Island.
For Jersey, the Class 1 licence application fee has been set at £1,500 and the minimum annual licence fee for postal operators is £1,000. From 1 March 2012, Jersey postal licence fees are calculated on the basis of 'licensable turnover' (the sum of a licensee's turnover generated by the provision of postal services for letters that are below the licensable limits of £1.30 and/or 500 grams). For Jersey Post Ltd, as the universal postal operator in Jersey, licensable turnover includes turnover generated by the fulfilment of its universal service obligations ('USO') (even where those activities fall outside licensable letter limits). In effect, this includes Jersey Post's income from postal and retail services, but excludes income from Promail, Philately, Forex, Fedex (courier and express services) and bulk mail above the licensable limits of £1.30 and/or 500grms. Further detail is provided in Document CICRA 12/19.
For Guernsey Post Ltd, the annual licence fee payable by Guernsey Post Ltd is set out in Document OUR 04/08.
