EASA CPL(A) requirements

Hello everyone,

I am a holder of an EASA PPL(A) license with an IR and MEP rating, I finished my modular CPL training and soon I will have my skill test, but I still have a doubt about the requirements.

The minimum total flight time is clearly 200 hours, but for an holder of a valid IR(A) rating, up to 5 hours of instrument ground time in a simulator (FNPT, FTD or FFS) can credit towards the 200 hours TT.

This means that the actual total flight time required is 195 hours, right?

I am asking this because I received different answers, everyone told me that simulator time doesn't count at all in that total flight time and Part FCL doesn't seem really clear about this topic, so I was wondering if anyone could explain the exception related to these 5 hours of instrument ground time.

Thank you
