The accounts do not balance because of a rounding problem when you process an Intercompany Posting in Microsoft Dynamics NAV

Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1

This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for all language locales.

Symptoms


Assume that you process an Intercompany Posting in Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Even though you set the same Amount Rounding Precision in General Ledger Setup for each company, the used rounding precision on the invoices are different unexpectedly. Therefore, when you check the statistics, you notice that the accounts do not balance. You expect the rounding precision to be transferred from one company to another company. For example, if 2 decimals are used when you post an invoice in Company A, 2 decimals should be used when receiving the invoice in Company B.
This problem occurs in the following products:
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2
