2962436 - The Monthly Invoice Generates a Tax Difference of 1 JPY - Yen

Symptom

The Monthly Invoice generates a Tax Difference of 1 JPY - Yen.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Receivables work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Summary Documents view.
  3. Open the relevant Monthly Invoice.

There is a Total Tax Difference of 1 JPY - Yen.

Cause

This is the correct system behavior, the difference occurs due to the rounding of each individual invoice and the rounding of the Monthly Invoice that adds all other Invoice Amounts, for example:

Invoice A has a Tax Base Amount of 153 with a Tax Rate of 10%, it would generate a 15.3 Tax Amount, since JYP has no decimals, it will round to 15.

Invoice B has a Tax Base Amount of 153 with a Tax Rate of 10%, it would generate a 15.3 Tax Amount, since JYP has no decimals, it will round to 15.

On the Monthly Invoice C, it will add both Tax Base Amounts for a Total of 306 with a Tax Rate of 10%, it would generate a 30.6 Tax Amount, since JYP has no decimals, it will round to 31.

Both Invoices A and B added to a Total Tax Amount of 30, while the Monthly Invoice has a Total Tax Amount of 31, it will generate the 1 JPY - Yen in the Tax Difference.

Resolution

System is working as expected.
