    No, this can be calculated exactly just like gravitational energy can be calculated with Newtons gravitational law. No corrections are needed. There is also a statement (proven in mechanics, first year bachelor course for physicist, long time ago), which states that an object feels the gravity field of another mass like all the mass is concentrated in a singularity. The same can be applied to charges.
