Advisory: Post Office Box Renewal Payments

January 26, 2020 | 1 Comment

The Bermuda Post Office [BPO] said they “would like to remind the public that Post Box renewal payments were due by January 1st, 2020, and apologise for the delay in the issuance of individual annual notices.”

“Notices will be issued within the next week,” a spokesperson said.

“Regrettably, the BPO is advising the public that the HSBC bill payment option is currently unavailable. However, arrangements are underway to bring it back online. In addition, an alternative online payment portal is currently being worked on. Instructions on its use will be sent out in due course.

“In the meantime, payments can continue to be made in cash/ cheque or by debit/credit card at any post office around the island.

“Please note that payments made from February 1st, 2020 are subject to a late fee of $25 in addition to the post box renewal fee.

“The Post Box rental fees are as follows:

  • Small: 6 months, $50.00; 12 months, $85.00; 24 months, $150.00;
  • Medium: 6 months, $75.00; 12 months $120.00; 24 months, $220.00;
  • Large: 6 months, $175.00; 12 months, $300.00; 24 months, $575.00.

“For more information on Post Boxes please call 297-7955. For other services provided by the BPO please visit www.bpo.bm or the Bermuda Post Office Facebook page.”

    What a bunch of clowns.

    “Notices will be issued within the next week”, in the meantime, failure to pay within the next week will result in a facking great penalty of almost 30% based on the small box rental. Typical government ‘service’.

    The online payment system with HSBC is busted. And don’t even think of paying via BNTB or Clarien ’cause that was way too much work for them to setup in the first place.

    Oh, and the online payment option to pay directly is busted too and has been for a couple of years – but its’ “currently being worked on.” Probably by the same guy that’s working on the new bus schedule that should be implemented very soon.

    But don’t worry, you can come in and pay in person. During office hours only. You know, when YOU need to be working yourself. Oh, and please take note of the sign – ‘Last customer served at 4:15′ ’cause those hard working civil servants want to waddle on out of there on time at 4:30 and not a minute later!

    Think anyone will be fired over this clusterf$%k? Not a chance. They’ll hire a few more people to tell them how to do it right in time for next year. Or the year after. Or the one after that.

    But all the problems will be sorted out before they take over your health care. According to Burt, you’ll soon be able to pay your government fees directly with stable coin. And Bermuda will be the leader in Fintech, and rainbows and pixie dust.
