Purchasing Text Units / Pricing

The number of text units that a school purchases will depend on the size of the school and how frequently a school will use the service.

*, an IPPN service, as a Registered Charity 17227, will charge and return VAT at a rate of 23% on all credit purchases from non-member schools and organisations from January 1st 2017.
