How to add a Foreign Currency

By default, all companies are linked with Pakistan Rupee as the Base Currency, however, you can ask the Support team to change the Base Currency.

Once Multicurrency is enabled, the base currency can’t be changed.

To add new foreign currencies,

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select Currencies
  3. On the Currency List Select Add New
  4. From the Dropdown select the Currency to add
  5. Press Save & Close


Setup Foreign Currency Customer / Supplier

Once the Multicurrency module is enabled, When setting up the Customer records, it can be linked to the customer currency.

Simply add Customer, and on the “Terms” tab, select the Customer Currency.

The Currency linked with the Customer is non-editable. Once a currency is linked with a Customer you will be able to record customer-related transactions in Customer Currency.

When adding a sale invoice of a foreign currency Customer, there will be an option to add an exchange rate.

Say, a GBP customer is invoiced in GBP at an exchange rate of 0.005. Press the Green Save Icon to update the exchange rate. This will appear on the next GBP transactions.

Simply, record the invoice in GBP and press Save & Close
