rounding differences for SIS invoice vs accounting invoice

The forced calculation (and SIS recalculation) to 3 decimals for add-ons and taxes causes a reconciliation difference between the invoice totaled at 3 decimals compared to the line items totaled with 2 decimals for accounting purposes.  If we send our 2 digit accounting total, the file fails as it does not have the 3rd digit.  Where that rounds beyond .01 in aggregate, the difference occurs.  We are using SAP SD to generate the invoices for accounting and our Group currency is defined as standard USD with 2 decimals.
 
Question: Can SIS relax the recalculation to 3 decimals and accept only 2?

Hi Keith,

 

For this issue we would like to ask for a sample XML from you so that we can further investigate. Would you mind sending us such a file? You can forward this to sisoperations@iata.org.

 

Thanks and regards,

Ashley
