Brandon,MB, Canada, 2nd Sep 2022, King NewsWire, Turning on the Multicurrency feature in QuickBooks is recommended if a business has customers, suppliers, or bank accounts that don’t use the business’ home currency. Once it’s on, transactions can be added in another currency and QuickBooks handles all currency conversions.
Users can also assign a single currency to most types of accounts, including customers, suppliers, bank and credit card accounts, accounts receivable, and accounts payable.
Exchange rates can be used from IHS Markit, or users could use their own rates for transactions, and can manually enter in exchange rates for foreign currency transactions. The chart of accounts shows account balances in their assigned currency along with a currency column identifying each account’s currency, while bank and credit card will have the currency used next to the name along with the registries.
Instead of separate reports for different currencies, QuickBooks uses the home currency for financial reports. They include exchange gains or losses based on rate changes. Once an account has had a transaction posted to it, the account’s currency can no longer be changed. Some product features may not be available once this feature has been turned on.
“Some key points to consider with the multicurrency feature are that once you turn it on, you cannot turn it off, and only one home currency, for example, USD or CAD can be used for the QuickBooks Online file,” E-Tech’s John Rocha said.
“If your file has global customers or vendors who want to be invoiced in their local currency, you would need to set up a customer and vendor for each currency. This in turn impacts reports.”
E-Tech’s Multicurrency feature removal service enables users to remove the multicurrency settings from a data file and convert the file to a single currency. This also simplifies the process of converting your data file to QuickBooks Mac or QuickBooks Online. Visit https://e-tech.ca/Quickbooks-Multiple-Currency-Turn-Off.aspx for more information.
