Calculate 5% of a months rent

For this example, we are using the Tenancy Datasource. And we want the resulting output on the template to produce 5% of rent amount.

Field - tenancy.totalRent

This field, will pull through the combined total rent for that tenancy.

Helper - moneyFmt

This helper formats the amount to UK £

Helper - divide

This helper divides

Parameter - by what number

This parameter works in conjunction with divide helper

By combining the above, we have the complete string as follows:

{{ moneyFmt (divide tenancy.totalRent 20) }}

Example if tenancy.totalRent is £700 then result would be £35

Take the calculation one step further

By adding another helper to the field we can apply a complete calculation on the output of the document.

Helper - multiply

This helper multiplies

Parameter - by what number

This parameter works in conjunction with divide helper

The string example

{{ moneyFmt (divide (multiply tenancy.totalRent 105) 100) }}

Example if tenancy.totalRent is £700 then result would be £735
