More decimal places on item costs please.

Idea suggested by David Morris 7 years ago

We need at least 4 decimal places because we sell teeny tiny things that don't cost much. We have at least 10 products where each item is a charged in fractions of a penny and we have to manually write on all invoices that "the item is 0.00xx but our accounting software isn't able to display this."

It seems we are not alone in wanting greater decimal places in the invoicing structure.

Considering that utilities price the supply of fuel in thousandths of a penny (eg 843 kWh @0.509 pence = £4.29) especially for the RSE charges, then ALL Clearbooks customers potentially have a need for 5 decimal places so they could mirror purchase invoice calculations.

Is there any feedback from the clearbooks developers about this issue?

Well I've noticed that CB now gives a warning when a sub penny price is used.

But I still think that more than 2 decimal places are needed to be displayed.

I've started using the unit price in pence and using a percentum of the quantity to get the displayed figures closer to the calculation.

I still need this from 3 years ago
