Financial Statements: Invert signage on Variance calculations for reversed signage Cost Lines

When producing eg cost centre reporting statements - when you currently reverse signage on Cost lines (ie to show them as a positive number), the in-built variance calculation continues to show the variance as (Actual less Budget), thereby resulting in showing eg a lower cost, as a negative variance ie adverse performance which is incorrect in financial accounting terms.
Please could this be corrected for when signage is reversed.
