Tolerance for valiation

ISPG states there is a 50 cent USD tolerance used in the SIS validation process.  Where is this tolerance applied, on record 20, 30, 40 or 50?  If the net amount is off 1 cent on a record 20 or 30 meaning the gross, isc and tax total is off by 1 cent, will that fail validation?

Dear Paula,

 

We have two tolerances in the system:

 

1.     Summation tolerance of 0.5 USD

Validations of Totals within transaction/file/invoice. The totals should ideally have no variation but if there is a variation, the Tolerance Master will be referred to, in order to see if the variance is within the defined tolerance amount. Below are two examples where summation tolerance is used.

e.g. Source Code Totals should match with the totals of all billing records of that source code within the invoice.

e.g. If OC Breakdown in an AWB is provided, then the OC amount at the AWB level should be equal to sum of OC values in the OC Breakdown

 

2.     Rounding tolerance of 0.05 USD

This is used when converting for e.g. the invoice value from listing to billing currency. In SIS when there is a variation, the system will check if the values fall within the amounts specified in the tolerance master.

 

Hope this clarifies.

Regards,

Ashley
