Hermes cuts prices for private parcel shipping

Hermes has announced it will  reduce the price of private parcel shipments from 1 July 2020, following the decision of the Federal Government to temporarily reduce VAT  to buffer the impact of the pandemic.

The company said: “The Federal Government has agreed on a multibillion-dollar stimulus package in the fight against the consequences of the Corona crisis. At the heart of the package is a temporary reduction in the VAT rate. The standard VAT rate is to be reduced from 19 to 16 percent and the reduced rate from 7 -5%. The aim of the measure is to stimulate consumption through lower selling prices. Hermes supports the Federal Government in its efforts and will pass on the cost reduction to the customers.

“This makes private parcel shipping at Hermes cheaper during the period envisaged by the Federal Government for the reduction of the VAT rate.”

Dennis Kollmann, Chief Sales Officer Hermes Germany said: “It goes without saying for us that we make our contribution and pass on the tax advantage to our customers. As a purely private parcel service, we are subject to VAT and are now pleased to be able to offer our customers temporarily lower parcel prices and thus make private parcel shipping even more attractive.”
