Statement of Accuracy

A Statement of Accuracy (SOA) ID and % rating must be declared on the Statement of Posting accompanying the lodgement. If the declaration is missing or incomplete or the SOA declared is less than 80%, the total lodgement will be deemed ineligible for bulk mail rates Tier 4 rates will be applied.

All lodgements must have an SOA of 80% to continue to receive GoFlexible rates. If the declared SOA is between 80% - 89.99%, the lodgement will qualify for a Tier 3 rate. If the declared SOA is between 90% - 94.99%, the lodgement will qualify for a Tier 2 rate. If the declared SOA is over 95%, the lodgement will qualify for a Tier 1 (lowest available) rate.

SOA Percentage SOA Price Tier
95%+ Tier 1
90% - 94.99% Tier 2
80% - 89.99% Tier 3
<80% / No SOA Tier 4
