Correction Factor (CF) A fixed meter specific factor applied to take into account the effect of temperature and pressure on actual gas flow. It is a legal requirement to include this factor in the calculation of our invoices. Calorific Value (CV) This represents the amount of heat or energy in a given volume of gas. An average calorific value is calculated monthly by the transporter and allows for any periodic or regional variations in the quality of natural gas. It is a legal requirement that we include this factor in the calculation of our invoices. Climate Change Levy (CCL) This is a government energy tax on Industrial and Commercial consumption, subject to VAT. To calculate CCL multiply Total Consumption by 0.177p/kWh. This is a CCL accounting document. How to calculate your gas invoice • To calculate the gas used, subtract the previous read from the present for each meter. • Multiply the figure by the Correction Factor (CF). • To calculate the number of M3 used, multiply this figure by the Conversion Factor (shown below in the table and on the reverse of your invoice). • Multiply this figure by the Calorific Value (CV). • Divide this figure by 3.6 to convert to kWh. • Multiply the number of kWh by the unit price to calculate the cost per meter. • Add together the cost of each meter to calculate the total cost, excluding VAT. • VAT is added at 20.0% unless any exemptions apply. • Apply CCL at a rate of 0.169 per kWh unless any reductions apply. • The sum of these calculations amounts to the Total Gas Sales.
