The Post Office renders a service of capturing specific information as required by companies and government departments for the use of licence applications such as SABC television licences, surveys and any other information to be captured electronically.
The applicable company will request clients to approach their local post office to apply for services or licences such as angling licences. The client needs the applicable information as required by the company or government department with which he wishes to deal.
Clients are offered a local or larger choice of where they can do these types of transactions. The data is captured and submitted electronically which speeds up applications.
Some post offices and Postpoints are open later than normal business hours and some are even open on public holidays, making account payments easier.
