I had the same problem. I needed to implement the so called Bankers' Rounding
Function, which would round with respect to the 4/5 rule. And finally I
ended doing it myself in a short Function in LO Basic. I tried my best,
although math and programming are not my strong sides. So here it is,
together with a Subroutine called "rounded_test" and the very Function is

You can call it for each line (item) in an invoice. It will take the number
you through at it and will return it rounded to the second diggit after the
comma or point separator. Then when you sum the invoice up - the numbers
will always be consistent and correctly rounded.
This is not the best of programming though, but it works.
I hope it will help someone.
Feel free to modify and use it as you please.
Just one point I would like to make. If you are working with money be
sure that the total of the rounded amounts adds up to match the original
$5.39 divided among several accounts.
10.5% to Acct A = 0.56595 => $0.57
13.5% to Acct B = 0.72765 => $0.73
17% to Acct C = 0.9163 => $0.92
59% to Acct D = 3.1801 => $3.18
Total = $5.40
Any summing error needs to be accounted for if you ever want your
accounts to balance.
