2016 REVISED VAT SURCHARGES.  Circular No. 15-69 dated December 21, 2015 was signed by current OIC / PMG Joel Ottara imposing a 12% VAT on ALL products and services of Phlpost. So now it will cost 12% more, rounded up to the next peso, to mail anything starting Jan 2, 2016.  The VAT charges are now incorporated with the new postal rates.  See partial list here.

NEW POSTAL RATES:  Effective August 1, 2016, international postal rates will be increased.  As soon as we get our official list, we will publish it.  We presume that all new issues will reflect these new rates.
