The Royal Mail’s Scotland Postcode Address File (PAF), is often used to capture, create and or maintain & clean in-house address lists. This includes WEB registrations, forms and customer databases to reduce the number of returned or undelivered items from mailing programs. Obviously, there are many more applications that you can use the PAF data for, including mailing, planning, leaflet distribution, logistics, navigation to name just a few! This PAF download is the only official address database, and is provided by Royal Mail. It is without any doubt the definitive, most up-to-date, and comprehensive address database available.
This regional PAF product covers every business and residential delivery point / address in Scotland. You’ll initially receive one compressed file (ZIP), which opens into several Comma Separated Variable (CSV) files. CSV files will open with most software applications, including but not limited to Excel, Word, Notepad, Access, SQL etc. If you require the data supplied in another format then we will be more than happy to try and accommodate you at no extra cost.
