Calculations Explained

Add tax to bill

If set to on, the amount you enter will have the Tax % applied. For example, $100 with a tax rate of 10% means a subtotal of $100 plus an additional $10 of tax is applied giving a total of $110 . If set to off and the Tax % is set, the entered amount includes the percentage tax set. For example, if the $100 includes 10% tax, it gives a $90.91 subtotal plus $9.09 of tax.

Tip on pre-tax amount

This option is paired with the “Add tax to bill” function, if set to on, to calculate the tip on the subtotal (before tax) amount. Following from the example above​, if the subtotal (pre-tax) is $100 and the Tip % is 10%, then the tip is $10.

Rounding​

Five options are provided and, depending on currency, some options will be more suitable than others. For instance, the currency Yen has no decimal places so the rounding to 10 or 100 works well; however​,​ for currencies like $ rounding to 0.50 or 1 are more appropriate. Rounding is always up to the nearest rounded unit. For example, if 1 is set as the rounding unit and you have a bill payable of $10.01, this will round up to $11.00. The rounding​ amount has to be calculated into the bill in order to balance the total. We utilise the tip amount for this purpose, the rationale being that rounding will then benefit the service provider.

Multi-Currency Support

Four key currencies are supported irrespective of the regional settings on your phone. The use of decimals, points or commas are based of the currency. For example in Euro the decimal portion of the amount is marked with a comma “,”. If you select the Device option, the calculator will use and display the currency according to the regional settings on your iOS device.

Themes​

A number of colour themes are available via the in-app purchase section (the shopping cart on the top left of the screen). Once purchased, you can select between the default theme and any purchased themes when and as required.
