Dear Sir / Madam,
I am very confused; The Actual cost would be entered (Cost of the books, normal purchase price and Cost, replacement price of the books) on Koha. When I receive the books and insert Price of the books at Koha Software, here Two box available (1. Cost, normal purchase price and 2. Cost, replacement price). I think, first option should be (1. Cost, normal purchase price) for actual price of the books and second option should be (2. Cost, replacement price) for price of the books (without discount)!!
Please suggest me, what is correct ?
1. Cost, normal purchase price: Here one should write the actual price of the book without a discount.
2. Cost, replacement price: Here one should write the cost to be recovered from the user if he/she lost the book. In general, it is the actual price of the book without a discount + other administrative/miscellaneous charges recovered from the user for the lost book.
It is my perception, others may differ.
Thank you so much sir.
Dear Sri Sudhir Kumar,
Thanks for your post.
In our University, we adopt the following criteria:
1) Cost Price: The actual discounted price which denotes CTC (Cost-To-Company)
2) Replacement Price: The gross amount or the Actual Catalogue Price in INR with mention of the Currency if the book is priced in Foreign Currency simply because we want to ascertain the actual INR on the basis of FCCR (Foreign Currency Conversion Rate)
