How to enter multi-currency in Starting Balance.
Hi, hope someone can help me.
My background situation is as follows: We are a Malaysian company, the accounts currency are in Ringgit Malaysia (RM). My company sells goods to a customer overseas and our customer pays us an advance deposit upon placing an order based on our quotation. However, we do not bill the customer until delivery of the goods. All transactions relating to this customer is in USD. Our financial year end is October. the payment is recorded in a holding account in the Balance Sheet current liability section.
Our customer paid us USD12,091.50 or RM48,796.46 in October as deposit for an order to be delivered in December.
In Wave, I have designated the customer as a USD invoice customer and I have billed the customer the full invoice amount of USD24,183.00 in December. The customer has also paid us the balance of USD12,091.50 in December.
In starting balances I had entered the deposit amount into a holding account (BS liability) as RM48,796.46. (note: this is a new company).
Previously, our book were in Excel and we did our currency conversion manually.
My problem is now that I am using Wave, I am don't know how go about offsetting the Ringgit Malaysia (RM) amount in the holding account against my USD Debtor account.
