It depends why you are returning it - if the parcel was not for you, and has not been opened, then you can use the return to sender system. However, if you are returning a purchase which you made, then you will have to pay the return postage. You are not allowed to return to sender a package which you have opened and then repacked.

Long ago I was a Customs Officer. If you have paid duty and VAT there used to be a way to reclaim it but you will not get the "P O Clearance Fee" back. Contact H M Revenue and Customs - as they now are - for help. If you simply want to send it back for some reason simply take it to to the Post Office. I very much doubt if writing "return to sender" will work. The cost to Australia is pretty dire and you will have to put a true declaration form on it [but include the words "returned goods" and your recipient may not have to pay.
