Rounding amounts


Consider the following invoice: (comma is decimal separator).

Line1---> LineTotal: ........ 100,5550

Invoice total:................... 100,5550

VAT:............................. 16,0888

Total after VAT:.............. 116,6438

The problem is: in lines is needed 4 decimals, but in invoice totals only 2.

So, if we round invoice total to 100, 56; VAT to 16,09; and Total after VAT to 116,64; the sum of Total (rounded) and VAT (rounded) does not match the Total after VAT rounded:

100,56 + 16, 09 <> 116,64

If we obtain sum Total(rounded) and VAT(rounded) we get 116,65 as Total after VAT (rounded). However, journal entry is still 116,64.

Is there a way to tell SAP that the number of decimals in total lines is different of number of decimals in invoice footer totals?

Or do you know any workaround?

Thank you very much.

Hi Vanessa,

it is exactly this system behaviour that initiated the creation of the new VAT calculation method in version 2007. These rounding issues do no longer occur in that version & I would recommend you upgrade.

All the best,
