Rounding proposal


#1

In invoices, when rounding happens, it seems that the rounding is happening in every item, and not in the sum. No?


#2

When using Rounding method option, rounding will be applied to the total. Why do you think it’s happening on every line item?


#3

When it happens again, i’ll post a screenshot.
There were times I had to play with numbers just to get my supplier’s invoices and
the 0.01 or 0.02 ammounts remaining after closing the sum with them, without using the rounding option method, i meant.
Lets say all the items of the supplier use 4 or 5 decimals.
Or when it happens after a discount or i imagine even with a withholding tax.

I see what you mean now… yeah… the line items are rounded on line items too regardless of rounding method you are using.

So if you are using currency with 2 decimal places, then all line item totals will be rounded to 2 decimal places.

This is because each line item could be (and usually is) posted to different account so it’s really important all amounts are rounded in order to keep integrity of double-entry accounting system.
