TARE and T R E T.
Tare and Tret are practical rules for deducting certain allowances, which are made by merchants and tradesmen in selling their goods by weight.
Tare is an allowance, made to the buyer, for the weight of the box, barrel or bag, &c. which contains the goods bought, and is either at fo much per box, &c. at so much per cwt. or at so much in the gross weight,
Tret is an allowance of 4it in every 104it for waste, dust, &c.
Cloff is an allowance of 2ft upon every 3 cwt.
Gross weight is the whole weight of any sort of goods, together with the box, barrel or bag, &c. which contains them.
Suttle is when part of the allowance is deducted from
Neat weight is what remains after all allowances are made.
CA SE 1.*
When the tare is at so much per box, barrel or bag, &c.Multiply the number of boxes, barrels, &c. by the tare, and subtract the product from the gross, and the remainder will be the neat weight required.
