Do you have your system preference CalculateFinesOnReturn enabled? Also,
you'll want to make sure finesMode is set to "Calculate and charge.

> Hallo,

> Sometimes back the Intranet used to give this error during check-in:
> *           Can't call method "truncate" on an undefined value at >>
> /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/Circulation.pm line 1966*
> I searched for a solution online and found that setting debarred value to
> NULL resolve the "truncate" error, so i ran the SQL:
> *UPDATE borrowers SET debarred=NULL WHERE debarred='0000-00-00';*
> This solved the error, however the problem on charging fine showed up, it
> doesn't charge fine to patrons with overdue items during check-in.
> Kindly advice
