Currency Conversion Rate

Welcome to AlignBooks. We are happy to have you on board. In this help studio tutorial, we will explore the “Currency Conversion Rate” option.
Before we begin, let us understand about the need of Currency Conversion Rate setup and the usage of this particular activity.
If you are in a business where you need to raise invoice and get your purchase documents in different currency than the base currency in which you are maintaining your accounting records, you will need to convert the document currency (currency in which document is prepared) into your base currency for all accounting purposes.
Now a days the rate of currency fluctuate every movement and it is not practically possible to get the conversion rate every time you generate a document. To overcome this situation, you need to take a base conversion rate daily, weekly or monthly and based on that conversion rate documents prepared by you are converted and accounted for in you books of accounts. When you receive or make the actual payment, the difference (actual payments/receipts and amount booked earlier) is accounted for in Fluctuation difference account.
Therefore, in Currency Conversion Rate we setup the conversion rate for each currency with all the available data at hand. This library of data is extensively used to capture and auto generate the required documents and reports in a desired format.
This facility is available only if you have configured “Multi Currency -ON” while configuring your Company Setup. For doing so, go to Configuration -> Company Setup -> General Setup and keep the Multi Currency option “ON”. 
You can also edit and delete an already created set of information with required authorization.
The key functions of a Currency Conversion Rate Module are:
·     Creation of a New Conversion Rate Master;
·     Modification of an existing Conversion Rate Master;
·     Deletion of an existing Conversion Rate Master.
We will be going through the each of these set of information in detail.
