Rounding error in test IS-XML file

Dear Ashley,
 
We loaded the test IATA file called "PAX_Non_Sampling_IS_XML_Input_File.xml" and it seems that there is an error in it. Please, check the invoice R12K123451 as an example.
 
The indivividual amounts in the tax breakdown are:

1 vat = TaxAbleAmount*TaxPercent = -257.370*14%=-36.0318, 
2 vat = TaxAbleAmount*TaxPercent = 212.840*(-14%)=-29.7976. 

The calculated total tax amount is -65,8294  (rounded to -65,83) (calculated correctly) 
 
However, the TotalVatAmount in the Totals section does not match (-65,840). It seems that there must be a rounding problem there. Please see attached print screen for better explanation.

Hi Alexei,

We have corrected this file and will be distributing it with the next ISPG release. Thanks once again for bringing this issue up.

Kind regards
