"Voucher" could be a means of payment, not just the information about it that "figures" would mean.

"Payment voucher" would almost certainly mean a form of payment. Maybe "invoice" is a more appropriate word.

For the life of me I can't figure out what's wrong with "our customer". Is it better to identify the customer as his very own or to use the more polite "our customer"? Clearly he is asking for a payment voucher so the account can be settled and the customer pays. An invoice goes the other way i.e. from his company to the customer in question, in other words, the bill.

I would prefer "our customer". But I think the sentence is confusing. When I first looked at it, I thought the calculation must be from the merchant. But a payment voucher must be from the customer. So who is paying who? Why did the customer send the merchant a calculation? or a calculator? And how is a calculation (a thing) unable to understand?

I am unable to understand those calculations.

You could use something less personal like It is difficult to grasp/follow those calculations.

This Calculation are quite unable to understand.

In addition to the revision(s) already suggested, you might consider:

This calculation is not understandable.
This calculation is incomprehensible.
This calculation could never be understood.


Those sentences are much stronger than I am unable to understand this calculation.
They essentially say: I'm not able to understand it, nor would anyone else be able to.
