Additional Cost

The Additional Cost page is used to input other add-on costs like insurance, taxes, excise, packing & forwarding, special overall discounts. This page is divided into two sections. On the left is where the additional cost items will be added. The right section is not editable and contains values for Cost and Quantity for different Groups. We can use these values in the formula column for calculating the add-on cost.
