Why is the Invoice Displaying an Incorrect Tax-Owing Amount?


  • When a line item is chosen with no tax applied to it, but the other line items have the tax applied, the taxed amount seems to be calculated incorrectly.

Tax is calculated on the total amount (time*rate) of the line items that have tax selected to be applied individually to them. That is, tax is not calculated based on the 'Sub-total' showing on the bill, but rather on the sub-total of the line items that have tax applied to them.



In the invoice above, the sub-total showing on the bill is 2070.

However, as highlighted in the image, tax is only applied to 5 of the line items (Excludes the $12.50 line item. The taxable amount therefore, is $2,057.50  [ie, 2070-12.50],and not $ 2070.00

Seeing the sub-total of 2070 on the invoice (see below), and the tax-rate of 13% under it, might lead the reader to assume the taxed amount should then be (13% 2070 = $269.1), which is not the case, as the taxable amount is $2,057.50, and the taxed amount is therefore (13% 2057.50 = $267.48)
