Unit 18 Business Tax Help Needed!

Hi there - I wonder if someone can help me?

Why is it when you calculate the adjusted trading profit before capital allowances you deduct rental income, interest receivable and profit on sale of fixed assets - then you add them all back on when you calculate the PCTCT figure?
Can anyone tell me the reason for this?
Many thanks

    There are different schedules.

    Schedule D case i only deals with trading income. The rental income, interest receivable etc are not trading income so fall under different schedules. They need to be removed to find the taxable trading income but added back under the relevant schedules to find the total PCTCT
