The multiple drawbacks of the QuickBooks multiple currency feature

Brandon, MB, Canada, 4th May 2022, King NewsWire, Multicurrency is available as an advanced feature within QuickBooks Online. This feature tracks your foreign currency transactions including any exchange gains or losses you might incur. For countries where we offer multiple versions of QuickBooks Online, multicurrency is available in our Essentials and Plus versions

QuickBooks Multicurrency is ideal for businesses who buy or sell goods and services outside of Canada, buy or sell in foreign currencies or have accounts in foreign currencies.

For businesses operating globally, a multi-national pricing strategy requires the ability to set prices within a given country and currency conversion that establishes the selling price based on the current exchange rate.

The biggest disadvantage of enabling the multi-currency feature in QuickBooks is that once it is turned on, it cannot be turned off, and third party apps may not work well with multi-currency enabled

To keep exchange rates as accurate as possible, QuickBooks downloads exchange rates every four hours and updates them. When multicurrency is enabled, QuickBooks Online creates an account called Exchange Gain or Loss which maintains the difference on ever-changing exchange rates. 

Because exchange rates are constantly changing, linked transactions are more than likely to have different rates. 

Enabling multicurrency is known to impede the normal migration of data from QuickBooks Desktop to Online.
