How does multi-currency invoicing feature work in QuickBooks Online

1. Once the multi-currency feature is enabled, you will need to set up your new Customer in CAN currency. Create an Invoice (Create “+” sign > Customers > Invoice) in the same CAN currency. It will use default market currency exchange rate. You can use your own rate if needed.

2. On the Balance Sheet report, it will show a separate Accounts Receivable (A/R) – CAD account in the home currency.

3. To record the payment on the Invoice from the Customer, use Receive Payment form (Create “+” sign > Customers > Receive Payment). When you record the invoice payment, it will post exchange gain or loss on the same transaction journal. By clicking “More” at the bottom on the same Receive Payment screen, you can run “Transaction Journal” report to see exchange gain/loss on the transaction.
