On 20 November 2019, Australia Post provided the ACCC with a price notification proposing price increases for its ‘ordinary’ letter services to apply from 2 January 2020. These proposals included an increase in the basic postage rate for ordinary small letters delivered under the regular timetable by 10 per cent (i.e. from $1 to $1.10). Australia Post’s proposal also included price increases for the delivery of ordinary large letters delivered to the regular timetable.
On 6 December 2019, the ACCC decided to not object to the prices relating to notified services that were set out in Australia Post’s price notification.
