Accounting Ideas

More than 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.

    Not sure if this helps anyone, but I've managed to get the 3 decimal places I need by going into the settings for product defaults and making the change there - you're given an option for Decimal Precision where you can change the Quantity DP and Price DP accordingly.

    I can see this idea has been going on since 2020, why hasn't this been implemented yet. We are losing money due to the fact we can't use 4 decimal places. Come on Sage, you are seriously lacking behind. I honestly wish i hadn't changed from desktop now or moved to another accounting software!

    Nos encontramos con la necesidad de poder trabajar como mínimo con 3 decimales, tanto en precios unitarios de compras como de ventas. Es muy complejo tener que trabajar únicamente con dos decimales, ya que nos conlleva muchos problemas con proveedores, pero a la vez y de mayor gravedad con clientes.

    I have the same problem. i purchase products which come in minimum quantities of 100 units, when i dived cost by 100 i get a figure with 3 decimal points & the system rounds it dow to nearest whole number causing the captured cost to be wrong

    I agree I can't believe that there is not the option of 3 or 4 decimal places its on the Sage 50 non cloud version so I don't understand why its not on this version. More than 2 is used all the time in accounting and is available on all the other cloud packages I have used.

    We definitely need to have 3 or 4 more decimal places - have requested this before so the question is just why are Sage not introducing it ?

    Para poder trabajar mejor seria necesario añadir más decimales o poder modifacar como cada uno necesite.

    Not having 3 or more decimal places is defiantly a deal breaker for switching myself and all my clients over to Sage 50. We will be forced to stick with Quickbooks unfortunately as this is 100% required for the clients I work with!!

    Like all the comments below, three or four decimal places on purchase and sales invoices is a basic requirement for accounting. I can see the requests for this go back some time - when will it be rolled out.

    Hi - Is this idea due for review anytime soon?

    I can see its been mentioned there was a previous roadmap in place to include this. Are there any updates that can be shared?

    This is really important to work with the numbers. Need three or four decimal atleast.

    Would REALLY like the 4 decimal places, especially as my previous Sage 50 had it.

    Not having the 4 decimal places is creating extra work for me.

    This is an issue for sales invoices as well as purchase invoices, for small shops e.g. Butchers or greengrocers invoicing either per gram or per Kilo, you definitely need a minimum of 3 decimal places on either the Quantity, or the Price per unit field to make this work successfully. I notice there are still several other live ideas, all separately asking for the principal of extra decimal places. Could these also be merged if the aim is the same, to get this met faster please?

    Going forward, I think that Accounting Plus should really be able to cope with the basics which entry level Sage 50 Cloud used to handle going forward. For efficiency, if the developers need to make changes to bring the places to 3, why not go for 4 straight away, and save development time later on perhaps?

    Good morning, our company needs more than two decimal places to do the invoices properly. This is a big problem for us

    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.
