The hours accrued per hour paid figure set to every hour worked changes if my preference is set to decimals in QuickBooks QBi

Legacy KB ID: 381

Question

Why does my leave figure change when using accrual period Every Hour and time format based on decimal in QuickBooks QBi?

Answer

In QuickBooks, the precision of time type variable is up to one second.

Here is an example of how QuickBooks rounds leave accrual:

If you enter 0.07692 in the Hours accrued per hour paid field, QuickBooks converts it into seconds and rounds it to 277 seconds, i.e 0.07692 X 3600 = 276.912

Therefore QuickBooks works out 277 / 3600 = 0.07694*

If you use preference to show Time Format as Minutes, then you can see the precision is up to second as well.
