    Hi, I am translating an invoice from Argentina.

    The bottom of the invoice has a small table with the following headings:
    | Subtotal | Dto. Gral. | Subtotal | Total. |​

    What does "Dto. Gral." mean? Does it have to do with taxes?

    Thanks!

    I don't have direct knowledge of this, but "Departmento General" does not seem to fit, so I suggest you look at this thread titled "Descuento general":

    Plus you can search for "Dto. Gral." in this pdf document for some support for the thesis that "descuento general" fits in your context:

    I hope that helps.

    I do believe that is correct. It seems so obvious now that you have brought this to light. Thanks!
