How to Change Default Currency

You should be able to change your Home Currency on the Advanced Company Settings page.

Here's how:

  • In the upper-right hand corner, click on the Gear icon at the upper right corner.
  • Choose Account and Settings under Your Company
  • In the left Panel, click Advanced.
  • Look for the section labeled "Currency" and click on it.
  • Change the Home Currency to your preference.
  • Click Save.
  • Click Done.

In case you've already turned on the "Multi currency" feature, you can't change the home currency anymore. If that's the case, you have the option to wipe your company data, and redo the setup including the correct home currency. OR cancel the subscription and get a new subscription account.

 

Hope this helps!

How to Change Default Currency

Hello 78101135276086, 

 

You may be experiencing a browser-related issue that made the currency symbol interchanged. We can verify that by logging in to QuickBooks using a private browser. To use a private browser, here's how:

 

  • Google Chrome: Ctrl + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: Ctrl + Shift + P
  • Safari: Command + Option + P

If this works, it means that you need to clear your browser's cache so the system can start fresh. If you get the same result while using a private browser, I suggest switching to a different browser. Then, try creating an invoice if the currency symbol is posting as expected. 

 

If the issue persists, you can get in touch with our Phone Support Team so they can further investigate. 

 

Keep me posted on how this works. I'll be around to help you manage your currency. Take care!
