Select Use foreign currency revaluation to revalue invoices paid in foreign currency to their value in base currency.
This uses the exchange rate set in the foreign exchange rate table. The foreign currency exchange rate table should be updated regularly to ensure the correct exchange rates are applied to transactions.
The current system exchange rate is used by default when you enter a transaction. You can override this at the time of entry.
This exchange rate is used when the transaction is converted to base currency and posted to the Nominal Ledger.
As exchange rates can fluctuate between the time the transaction was entered and when the invoice is paid, the exchange rate applied to the transaction and the actual exchange rate when the invoice is paid can differ.
When using Foreign currency revaluation, the exchange rates on the two transactions (the invoice and the payment) are compared when they are allocated. If these are different, the exchange loss or gain is calculated and posted to the currency adjustments and creditors control account in the Nominal Ledger.
If you do not select Foreign account revaluation then the exchange rates are not compared and no Nominal Ledger postings are made.
You can also revalue any outstanding transactions in the Period End Routines.
We recommend this is not changed once you have started entering transactions because changing it can cause difficulties in reconciling the purchase ledger to the nominal ledger.
This affects invoices entered subsequently. However, if you clear the check box while there are invoices waiting to be authorised, you will not be able to authorise them as the Authorisation menu option will not be enabled.
Enter the authorisation amount in the Require authorisation for amounts exceeding box.
To require all your invoices to be authorised, do not specify an amount here.
Those invoices which equal or fall under the specified amount can be selected for authorisation as they are recorded on the ledger.
Any credit notes recorded on the ledger, regardless of their value, are automatically selected for authorisation. You can you can remove the authorisation flag as they are entered onto the ledger.
Transactions that have not been authorised are assigned an unauthorised query flag (U). You can see this flag on the Supplier Transaction Enquiry.
Invoices or credit notes that require authorisation are posted to the default nominal unauthorised purchases account. When you authorise the transactions the original postings are automatically reversed. You can then apply your usual nominal analysis.
