Money collected under the company's name as its sole right and is not to be taken

Fatwa no. 8373
Q: There is person who has the job of collecting the electricity bill for the joint-stock Limited Electricity Company. When the value of the bill reaches five Dinars and one hundred and fifty-one Fils, he has to take five Dinars and one hundred and fifty-five Fils
(Part No. 14; Page No. 292)
as the unit of one fil is not available. As a result, he obtains an extra amount of money. The company's accurate calculations do not include this extra amount. The question is: What action should he take regarding the extra money? Should he take it or give it to the company?
A: If the reality is as you have mentioned, he should give the extra amount to the company as the money he collects is paid by the consumer for the company. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions!
