Took the plunge and got smart meter fitted.

Just wondering if the accumulated total on the screen is the figure i pay or is there anything else to add like a standing charge or is it all included?

usage that you see, then plus standing charge, then plus vat.
Yes. The standing charge is added on daily, at midnight, irrespective of whether you're using any gas/electricity or not.
On my (edf) smart meter, the usage so far today cost shown on the IHD includes the daily standing charge and the VAT at 5%.

So whatever is showing on my meter is what i will have to pay?
^^^ Yup. Should be.
yes, but then plus the standing charge, and then plus VAT.
A bit contradictory, these answers.
^^^ Agreed, Hoppy!

I stand by my answers above. See "I've been away from home . . . ", here on the British Gas website, for confirmation that the standing charge is added to the costs shown on a smart meter daily:

See 'Do smart meters show standing charges?' here for an answer that appears to cover all energy suppliers:
