Click Accounts receivable > Periodic > Foreign currency revaluation.

Use this form to view a list of the foreign currency revaluation jobs that have been run. The foreign currency revaluation periodic job generates transactions that update the value of open (not settled) customer transactions in foreign currencies. Each time that you revalue foreign currency amounts for customers, the value of open customer transactions that are posted in foreign currencies is adjusted. The periodic job is added to the list of performed foreign currency revaluations on the Overview tab.

When you click Foreign currency revaluation, the form in which you revalue foreign currency amounts on open customer transactions appears.

The following tables provide descriptions for the controls in this form.

Description

Show

Select the type of foreign currency revaluation jobs that are listed on the Overview tab.

Executed date

The system date when the foreign currency revaluation job was run.

Method

The method that was used in the selected foreign currency revaluation job:

  • Standard – Foreign currency revaluation jobs are posted regardless of whether the result is a profit or a loss.

  • Minimum – Foreign currency revaluation jobs are posted only if the result is a loss.

  • Invoice date – Foreign currency revaluation jobs use the original exchange rate of the transactions, which are revalued to their original value in the accounting currency. The effect of any prior foreign currency revaluation is canceled.

Considered date

The date when all transactions that have open (not settled) amounts on that date are found. Foreign currency amounts are revalued by using the exchange rates that are entered in the Currency exchange rates form for the considered date.

ImportantImportant

When foreign currency amounts are revalued on a considered date, this date becomes the last foreign currency revaluation date for the transactions that are adjusted. If you decide to run a foreign currency revaluation for a considered date that is earlier than the last foreign currency revaluation date on already adjusted transactions, transactions that are open on the earlier considered date but that have a more recent last foreign currency revaluation date are not adjusted by the periodic job. The last foreign currency revaluation date is therefore no longer updated when you revalue foreign currency amounts for a single transaction, but only when you run the foreign currency revaluation periodic job.

Date of rate

The date that determines the exchange rate that is used in the foreign currency revaluation. If this field is blank, the exchange rate that applied to the considered date was used in the foreign currency revaluation.
