As we indicated here last week, some newsagents will find themselves paying a higher fee to access electronic invoices  from magazine distributors following a decision by those distributors to crack down against newsagents who do not adhere to industry standards.

We are helping newsagents using our newsagency software by refreshing our advice and making sure that they do have the latest release of our software running in their business and that they are following our published compliance advice.

Our assistance is in the form of proactive advice sent to potentially affected newsagents, telephone assistance and an education campaign using other contact platforms we have with our customers.

We are taking a no newsagent left behind approach.  Our goal is to ensure that our entire newsagent community is not disadvantaged by these penalty charged imposed by magazine suppliers.
