Some items include a PC Sum which is already included in the rate (including an addition of 10% for profit and overheads). The For example, item 723301 - "BOILER:RENEW WITH COMBINATION BOILER-NEW" includes a PC Sum of £600 exc vat for 'supply and delivery of Boiler, Flue and Fixing Jig'. This £600 should be adjusted to suit the actual cost of the items. So, using 723301 as an example and working on v6 base rates:
If the items covered by the PC Sum cost £500 instead of £600, then the amount invoiced should be £1,207.85 (i.e. £1,307.85 - £600 + £500)
If the items covered by the PC Sum cost £700 instead of £600, then the amount invoiced should be £1,407.85 (i.e. £1,307.85 - £600 + £700)
Evidence of the PC Sums claimed may be requested by the SOR client.
