After you have completed a currency conversion, you must complete some additional procedures. You must reconcile rounding differences in converted amounts, recalculate business statistics, journalize the ledger transactions, restrict access to the conversion tool, and revalue foreign currency amounts for customer and vendor accounts.

After the currency conversion, all reconciliation reports must be generated again to make sure that all converted amounts are correct.

  • If the conversion of the ledger accounting currency causes rounding differences, these differences are not posted by using the voucher where the rounding difference occurred. Instead, the differences are posted by using the voucher that was entered for the conversion postings. After the conversion, all reports that check by voucher and date include these rounding differences. This behavior is correct and can be ignored.

  • If the customer and vendor reconciliation reports display a difference amount on the total line, and no difference amount existed before the conversion, this difference amount has to be posted. The account is the summary account for customers and vendors. The offset account is the ledger account for conversion loss or conversion profit.

When all business statistics have been deleted, open the Business statistics form. Click General ledger > Periodic > Currency conversions > Post-conversion recalculations > Business statistics. Recalculate the business statistics by clicking Update.

When all ledger transaction journals have been deleted, you can journalize the ledger transactions. Click General ledger > Periodic > Journals > Journalizing.

After the currency conversion has been successfully completed, you should restrict access to the conversion tool to prevent additional use.

  2. In the left pane, under Process cycles, expand the Expenditure cycle node.

  3. Expand the Enable general ledger process node.

  4. Set permissions for the Convert ledger accounting currency and Convert ledger reporting currency privileges. For more information, see Security privileges (form).

If necessary, you can revalue foreign currency amounts after the currency conversion. You revalue foreign currency amounts by selecting Standard in the Method field for the revaluation. For more information, see Revalue foreign currency amounts for customers or vendors, Customer foreign currency revaluation periodic job (class form), and Vendor foreign currency revaluation periodic job (class form).
