Transmission Summary amounts on IS-XML file

According to the IS-XML Standard, the values on the transmission summary records is the 'Amount sub-totalled by currency code for the totality of invoices in the transmission'
 
Is this the actual sub total of the invoices or the hashed valued of the invoices
 
for example if the transmission contains 2 invoices, both for 100 GBP, then the total amount would be 200 GBP
 
What would happen if the transmission contained an invoice for 100 GBP & a credit note for 100 GBP (as credit note values have to be signed this would be -100 GBP). Would the total amount then be zero, or are we ignoring the signs making to total 200 GBP ?

Hi Peter,
 
The IS-XML standard takes the sign values under consideration when validating the total amounts in the Transmission Summary node.

So for example, if there are two invoices each of $100 then the transmission summary should have a value of $200

If there is one invoice of $100 and one credit note of $75 then the transmission summary should have a value of $25

In your sample the total of the file would be zero.

Best Regards

Bruno
