    ops system at work is generating invoices with zero totals – these have to be removed from the batch file or they end up in the finance system. you do not have to be a trained accountant or maths genius (I am neither) to see why this is a bad thing. The best case is only it hoses up the reporting (which is much of the whole point of having a finance system) as computers really don’t like trying to divide things by zero (the answer being infinity, which something mostly only folk with proper beards can deal with), worst case is the revenue and customs authorities think you’re trying to do a dodgy and everything is hauled up for full audit. still a pain when you have batches of 200 invoices…
