  • Currencies such as Swiss Francs or Australian dollars do not have low denomination coins such as 1c or 2c
  • For these currencies, the price must be rounded to the nearest available value, such as 0c or 5c.
  • Following is the system behavior for Rounding an amount in sales and service documents:
    • Anything in between 0.01 - 0.24 will be rounded off to 0.00, e. g. 999.24 -> 999.00
    • Anything in between 0.25 - 0.49 will be rounded off to 0.50, e. g. 999.35 -> 999.50.
    • Anything in between 0.51 - 0.74 will be rounded off to 0.50, e. g. 999.74 -> 999.50.
    • Anything in between 0.75 - 0.99 will be rounded off to 1.00, e. g. 999.76 -> 1000.00.
  •  The Rounding off is a standard setting in the Business Configuration activity Configure Price Strategy, you cannot change the configuration setting for the Rounding.
