Specifies the currency exchange rate that is used to translate the amount in foreign currency to the currency of the bank account. The foreign currency could be, for instance, the invoice currency or the payment currency of the business partner.


If you enter this currency exchange rate manually, the system uses this information to determine the corresponding amount in foreign currency from the amount in account currency.

This exchange rate is therefore used by the system solely as an means of calculation.


The exchange rate is usually transferred by the bank in the bank statement.


An invoice for 80 CHF is transferred by a customer in CHF to a bank account with account currency EUR.

The bank has used an exchange rate of CHF/EUR = 0.50, and applied charges amounting to 4 EUR direct, so that only 36 EUR is credited to the bank statement.

The system has made the following posting in posting area 1:

Debit:Bank 36 EUR / Credit: Bank clearing 36 EUR.

You have the following options for example in posting area 2 for posting this transaction including charges and clearing the invoice:

  • Clear the invoice in account currency EUR:
  • Debit: Bank clearing 36 EUR, charges 4 EUR / Credit: customer 40 EUR.
  • Clear the invoice in foreign currency CHF:

    If there is an exchange rate entry amounting to 0.5, the system calculates the foreign currency amount in the sum of 72.00 CHF. Consequently, you can make the following posting:

  • Debit: Bank clearing 72 CHF, charges 8 CHF / Credit: customer 80 CHF.
  • You can also clear the invoice in foreign currency CHF and post the charges in account currency EUR using appropriate transactions outside of bank statement postprocessing. You then set the status of this transaction in bank statement processing in the application menu: Process -> Change Status -> Completed.
