Not really enough to consider, also the handle should really be horizontal as you should take in the angle it is at. But as a checking exercise it is probably good enough, besides there is usually some considerable latitude with the torque figures provided by manufacturers.

Actually, I have a couple of Torque wrenches - guess it would be interesting just to check one against the other to see how they compare - might do that next time I'm out in the garage . . . .
