Overview of accounting configuration settings
|Tax precision||Enter the number of decimal places used for tax calculations. Depending on your accounting preferences, you can also choose a higher number for increased precision in tax calculations. Leave this field blank to use the default rounding precision, which is defined by the coins and banknotes available in your accounting currency. If you change your tax precision, tax calculations made from that point on will be affected; calculations made before the change will not be updated.|
|Accounting editable history window||The accounting editable history window (AEHW) is a setting that determines how far back in time you can modify accounting items. This window only allows you to modify items on bills that have not yet been closed; reservations with items on closed bills cannot be modified in any way—to correct, you must create a rebate for that bill.|
