Increase in processing fees from 1 April 2022


We regret to announce that the editorial costs for producing contributions necessitated an increase from ZAR180 to ZAR200 per page from 1 April 2022. Unfortunately, we had an increase in our editorial costs that necessitated an increase in the processing fees. However, we tried to keep the increase as low as possible.
