Is it possible Power BI is calculating incorrectly?

So I've been fiddling with some figures and doing a bit of validation, when I came across a discrepency that I haven't been able to identify the root cause of it. 

 

Is it possible Power BI is somehow incorrectly calculating my data? (Unlikely, I know). 

 

Col 1: Month Col2: This year figures Col3: Last Year figures Col4: YOY FiguresCol 1: Month Col2: This year figures Col3: Last Year figures Col4: YOY Figures

464,655.79 minus 2,912,595.64 = (2,447,939.85) 

 

I have been unable to explain why my PowerBI  Table visual is giving me 10 less than the correct arthimentic.

 

Thanks in advance

There's no mistake if you substract the 2 numbers in the Visual Total.

I'm fairly certain that's the correct number. What are you double checking on?
