Whenever you want to include tax in your services, you have to consider whether you want it to be an inclusive or exclusive sales tax.
Sales Tax (Exclusive)
Exclusive of sales tax means the amount of services doesn’t include sales tax and will be added to the grand total amount.
Sales tax (Exclusive) calculation:
Sales tax (Exclusive) = Total Due x Sales tax rate (%)
$325 x 5% = $16.25 (Sales Tax)
Sales Tax (Inclusive)
On the other hand, inclusive sales tax means that the amount of services does include a sales tax already.
Sales tax (Inclusive) calculation:
Sales tax (Inclusive) = Subtotal – (Subtotal / (100% + sales tax rate))
300 – (300 / (100% + 5%))
300 – (300 / 1.05)
300 – 285.71 = $14.29 (Sales Tax)
More info about inclusive computation in depth explanation can be found on this link.
You can select the preferred currency from 180 currencies available.
Note: If you need another currency to match what you have in your extranet, you can always set a secondary currency in your calendar.

You can also adjust the number of decimal places as shown below:
Quick tip (1): If the decimal places selected didn’t show up, try to do a hard refresh on your browser. The list below shows how to do a hard refresh depending on your browser and operating system.
Quick tip (2): If you select ‘0’ decimals, you’ll be disabling decimals from showing on your account interface, thus forcing the system to round up prices and rates. The round up may cause residual balance on the visual interface, although it does not reflect real balance nor payment balance.
