If you work with several currencies you can specify these currencies and adapt the settings under Registry - Currency in the left-hand menu.
In the Code field you can see abbreviations of various available currencies in the drop down window. Select the currencies you want to use. You can edit the various fields, for example change names and rates. The selling rate will be used for your supplier invoices and purchase orders. The buying rate will be used for your customer invoices, quotes and orders.
The currencies can have up to 4 decimal places and can be adjusted at any time.
The List's radio button choice offers an extra display column, which appears in customer and supplier invoice lists if you select the alternative: Show rates in foreign currency. If you want the invoice list to show only sums converted into Euro (base currency), select instead Show rates in domestic currency. Click Save when finished.
Your accounting will always be in Euro (base currency). When you save and post invoices the accounting data is calculated by multiplying the current exchange rate with the invoice amount. Note that the currency and exchange rate to be used can be edited directly in the header of the customer and the supplier invoice (as shown in the picture below), if the currency has been added to the currency list (see picture above).
Currencies can then be preselected on your customers and suppliers in the registry under Additional Information.
For the correct accounts for currency winnings and losses etc. to be retrieved for invoicing in foreign currency, these accounts must be registered under Registry - Chart of Accounts - Default Accounts.

You have the possibility to choose whether you want to continue updating your currency exchange rates manually or if you want to use automatic updates to provide you with the latest exchange rates.
