AccountRight Premier 2018.3 and later only

If you work with multiple currencies, you can use Live Exchange Rates (online files only) or manually set the rate inside the currency list. These rates are used to calculate local currency values in foreign currency transactions, but you can also update or override a rate when recording a transaction.

Need help calculating a currency value or exchange rate? Try the Currency Calculator.

There's over 150 foreign currencies available in AccountRight, so you don't need to create any. And you only need to enter exchange rates for the ones you use. Here's how:
