Why is tax calculating differently in the Basic Calculator?


I am getting a different tax amount when I test in the basic tax calculator

  • The basic tax calculator calculates the amount as one item / one line.
  • When calculated in an accounting software the lines are calculated individually; often this creates a difference if caps and or thresholds are involved.
