billing totals

 

Look at the Maths

 

Subtotal is 230.33 , GST is 30.05, however it says Total charges are 230.37 (should be 230.38)

 

Later on it says

 

Plus this invoice 230.37 but Total Due is 230.38

 

 

 

This is just stupid, especially for accounting software. There is definitely a bug here that should be fixed.

 

 

 

Must be the OCD in me, I know the 230.38 is correct, its just the paper trail is wrong....ARRRRRGGGGGGG

There may be fractions of a cent in the subtotal you cannot see, which seems a more likely explanation as to why adding the two rounded figures together does not = the total given.

0.00 + 230.37 = 230.38. Fail.

15% of $200.33 = $30.0585 that added  = $230.3885  they didn't round the final payable which could have been @230.39

200.33 * 1.15 = 230.3795, so it should never be $230.39.
