How we utilised our Schedule 17 to reduce VAT

The Brief

Save the Children asked RNB to produce their ‘Children & Young People Now’ magazine, an essential guide for anyone involved in work with children, young people and families.

Our challenge was to deliver key savings whilst keeping the charity’s valued readership informed and up-to-date.

The Solution

Despite the magazine being wrapped into printed polywrap previously, postal discounts on sustainable mail envelopes meant that RNB were able switch the pack, saving the charity considerable amounts of money.

In addition, the charity also uses our Schedule 17, which means they’re able to reduce the amount of VAT being paid on postage. On a mailing campaign of this size, this agreement is crucial, particularly for third sector organisations.

The Result

  • Produced 320,000 packs for the Children Now magazine
  • Significantly reduced postal costs for Save the Children
  • Utilised our Schedule 17 to reduce VAT
