Electronic Delivery

Receive RSa and RSb letters electronically

The option to receive RSa and RSb letters electronically is becoming more and more attractive for businesses, as a cost and time-effective alternative to the traditional post office method. However, electronic delivery should be seen as an additional service and not as a replacement for the delivery of printed documents.

One of the key advantages of electronic delivery is that you no longer need to go to the post office in order to pick up official letters. After successfully registering with one of the officially approved electronic delivery services, business employees or their representatives can retrieve documents online from anywhere, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Electronically delivered registered mail is held for at least 14 days in the inbox, but this time period can be extended if desired. Just like conventionally delivered mail, holds can be put on delivery for short periods of time, for example, for holiday periods or sick leave. No mail will be delivered electronically to the inbox during this time period. However, with electronic delivery, it is possible to pick up mail even while on holidays because the inbox can be checked almost anywhere, thanks to the Internet. In addition to the amount of time saved, electronic delivery also brings further cost reductions.

In the meantime, it is also possible to receive and send non-official documents electronically with proof of delivery. This option is especially interesting for businesses due to the amount of security that is gained, e.g. in sending contracts, policies and invoices.
