I had a peculiar problem posed by one of my user and thanks for this.

As per the User, SAP is calculating wrong MWST for a perticular line item as in the inset

Here it shows for the Value 144.80 the tax is 23% means it should calculate = 33.30

But calculating 33.33 i.e. .03 pence more and then checked in item condition MWST where I didnt understand first what is this condition round diff .03

why should SAP calculate MWST wrong?

I posted the thread and scratched my head endlessly and then found a peculiar behaviour of SAP

SAP calculates the Net VAT (MWST) to the correct value at the  bottom line, but rounds up and adjust with the highest calculated priced line item. I have checked randomly few invoices and found rounding can be seen for the highest calculated priced line item.

For example: 

Line item 40 in the sales order had the highest value and there the SAP rounded up.

and the line item 40 is highest priced and now go to item condition select MWST, double click and see

But when you see for the less then this priced line item you would not see the condition round diff as in inset

Similarly I check for several orders and this is the same thing I seen on every order.

One can calculate the whole Sales Order and see if the MWST is wrong?

for each line item if you see might be confusing, but when you total it up, will be right.

So in a nutshell, I can say SAP is calculating MWST right at the bottom line, but when you see each individual lines, it will be sometime confusing.

Any comments and suggestions are welcome.

By the way I have a related thread which inspired me to write this for the SAP Community is
