Alternatively the market price and value of the object can also be included in the ratio calculation to make out the capped rate. It is not at all difficult to calculate the rate of the product by finding out the original price which is paid by the buyer and the market value. If thee prices and values are known then one can easily calculate the capped rate on any product.

After that the fixed costs is determined which according to calculations is supposed to be about 10 percent of the original amount.

#### Inclusion of variable costs

All the variable costs are subtracted from this amount and as a result the capitalization rate or capped rate is calculated which comes out to be finally 10 percent. According to this calculation of capped rate, it is made compulsory to pay the calculated amount by the preceding year. The time span is also considered while paying the capped rate and the original amount of the product or commodity.

#### Increase in capped rate

The more time is passed on buying the product, the more will be its capped rate. For example at the same price, with the increased time span the capped rate will become about 50 percent.
