More then two decimal places

Need more then two decimal places for purchase invoice. Invoice for fuel and invoices with discounts on the unit price require more then two decimal places, as at the moment I am having to create another line on inputting the invoice stating decimal place difference, and this does not look very professional.

    As a SMB this is a real issue in today's international market for exchange rates, purchasing and supplying. We purchase, manufacture and supply electronic components on the global market and not being able to account to 6 decimal places is frustrating to state the least. I truly hope SAGE updates all the software products and versions.

    Please increase decimal points; find it baffling that this wasn't in place in the first instance. Makes invoicing so much harder and makes it overly complicated when it doesn't need to be. Needs to be changed soon otherwise we may have to re-think using Sage.

    Good day, did anyone ever get a response from Sage concerning the decimal places? If so please help. I am struggling with this issue. We need to invoice up to 4 digits after the coma i.e 36.0059.

    This not being a feature is disappointing - so many products are purchased with decimal places. On each purchase invoice I'm €20 - €50 off the correct total price and have to keep doing false "Credit notes" or "Supplier Refunds"

    Just migrated to SAGE Cloud and very disappointed that this issue was not highlighted before we migrated. We deal in tonnes/kilos so our invoices do not total the customer purchase order. This is a real oversight and needs rectifying asap.

    Still no advance on when this will arrive? Seems like such a basic function to be missing from accountancy software...

    Please increase to 3 decimals after the comma. Just migrated to online version and I am afraid we might need to revert to desktop version.

    Similar to fixing taxes rate at the product level, decimal point is a feature available to Sage 50 subscribers only. I don't believe Sage will ever enable these features (as well as other clever ones) anytime soon to Business Cloud Accounting users.

    I would also find this very useful - I buy a product for £0.002 and sell for £0.006.

    Agreed - would like this to be a setting to allow you to set to a value that meets your particular business need

    Some utility prices go to 6 decimal places - if changing, suggest data field type that does not restrict decimal places for calculation but for reporting rounds up as per utility bills

    This would help us as a business greatly as we invoice per tonne and sell in a lot of products in 25kg bags!!

    We need to be able to invoice for items in fractions of £ pence ie., £0.071. Thus 1,200 units at £0.071 = £85.20

    would need this to go to even 4 decimal places as have a bolts invoices where by its £35.02/100=0.3502 and you can't enter this anywhere

    I'm really struggling to raise a Purchase Invoice for 2.545 Tonnes charged at £582.00 per Tonne. Whether I raise the Purchase Invoice as Tonnes and £ per Tonne, or kg and £ per kg , I cannot raise the Purchase Invoice for the correct amount. The same problem occurs when I come to raise a Sales Invoice for the same Goods.

    Please increase to 3 decimal places.

    I work in an industry where taxes are a min of 4 decimal places and for that have difficulty with invoicing, receiving invoices and reconciling. Having the ability to select more than two decimal places would assist in me adding clients to the SBCA.

    I definitely would like to see an option to change number of decimal points. would make posting mileage claims much easier. Thanks.
