Calculating Adjusted Totals

I am trying to find a formulaic approach to establishing the adjusted totals in column J on the attached spreadsheet. This is derived by taking the original supplier amount (range B2 to B4) and then adding the adjustments in column G.

The problem I have is that the layout of the table in columns D to G varies in the number of lines of adjustment per supplier and the supplier name is only output in the first line of each adjustment (see cell D2 - 'Smiths Ltd')

Smiths Ltd 'Adjusted Total' = 2000 + 20000 + 1705.47 + 2890.22 = 26595.69

I would like to use a formula that references the 2000 and then automatically picks up the 'adjustments table' and recognizes how many adjustment lines there are.

I thought that the offset formula might work, but couldn't figure it out.
