I have read some financial reports for a company and both “amounted to” and “amounting to” are used. Do they have different meaning? Or “amounting to” is just wrong and shouldn’t be used?
The first is not a complete sentence.

The company’s total expenses, amounting to $1000, were lower than expected.

The company’s total expenses, which amounted to $1000, were lower than expected.

or

The company’s total expenses, amounting to $1000, are lower than expected.

The company’s total expenses, which amount to $1000, are lower than expected.

Hi,

I replied does not mean to say my English is better. Solely to share my opinion.

- The company’s total expenses amounting to $1000

- The company’s total expenses amounted to $1000

Regarding the statements above, I think both are correct.

Top statement is a continuous tense and the bottom one is a past tense.



Hope others share their opinion.

Hi,

No. The correct Past Continuous would be

The company’s total expenses were amounting to $1000.
Note that the Continuous, even if correct, is not a good choice here.

A better choice would be just
The company’s total expenses were to $1000.

The company’s total expenses amounted to $1000

Regarding the statements above, I think both are correct.No, see my note.


Top statement is a continuous tense and the bottom one is a past tense.
