What is the VAT Flat Rate Scheme and how does it work? Instead of adding up all the VAT you charge and taking away the VAT you can reclaim, you add up all your sales - including any VAT you charged to your customers - and pay a percentage of those sales to HMRC.
Is it cheaper to ship flat rate or by weight?
Flat Rate packaging provides a better value than weight-based pricing if your products fit within the defined dimensions of the Flat Rate packages. Flat Rate Envelopes and Small Boxes have a distinct advantage when shipping shorter distances, Zones 1-4, and for parcels weighing less than 20 lbs.
What is a good flat rate for shipping?
For example, flat rate envelopes start at $6.95, small flat rate boxes at $7.50, medium flat rate boxes at $12.80 and large flat rate boxes at $17.60. Overall, USPS flat rate shipping is among the most affordable options available for shipping!
