The output looks like this (headings are manual) Col D is text and reads as zero:

The active formula is this bit at the end: IFERROR(MID(A1,Start,Length),"")
but doing this: Value(IFERROR(MID(A1,Start,Length),""))
turns the preceding three results in to blanks, like wise various Text() formats.
I also tried an IF to only do the Value thing on the 4th item, but no joy, though that may be a way I have missed.

This is the csv data for cell A1: 
Customer2,SLC,01PG,-0021600.00,Customer2,01CQ,01PG,00021600.00,Customer2,SLC,02PG,-0021600.00,Customer2,SLC,03PG,-0024840.00,Customer2,02CQ,02PG,00021600.00,Customer2,02CQ,03PG,00024840.00,ABCD ltd,PLC,01AB,00002400.00,ABCD ltd,03CQ,01AB,-0002000.00,ABCD ltd,03CQ,01AB,-0000400.00,ABCD ltd,PLC,02AB,00002400.00,ABCD ltd,04CQ,02AB,-0002400.00,ABCD ltd,PLC,03AB,00002760.00,ABCD ltd,05CQ,03AB,-0002760.00,Customer2,SLC,04PG,-0021600.00,ABCD ltd,PLC,04AB,00002400.00
