5.093. What is the fee calculation sheet? The fee calculation sheet is intended to help the applicant to calculate the total amount of fees payable to the receiving Office. The sheet is usually annexed to the request form which the applicant obtains from the receiving Office. It is not part of the form and is not counted as a sheet of the request, however, and its use is not mandatory. Nevertheless, it is strongly recommended that the applicant complete the fee calculation sheet and submit it to the receiving Office. This will help the receiving Office to verify the calculations and identify any errors. Where two or more International Searching Authorities are competent for searching the international application (see paragraph 7.002), the Authority which was chosen by the applicant and indicated in Box No. VII of the request form (see paragraph 5.072) should also be indicated in the fee calculation sheet, together with the amount of the applicable search fee (see paragraph 5.187). See the Notes to the fee calculation sheet for details about completion of the sheet. For information about the payment of fees generally, see paragraphs 5.184 to 5.199.
