Learn about Multicurrency in QuickBooks Online

Learn when and how to turn on Multicurrency in QuickBooks Online Plus.

All your transactions must be accounted for in your books. If you have transactions in different currencies, QuickBooks' Multicurrency feature helps you record them easily without worrying about exchange rate conversions.

When to turn on Multicurrency

You can turn on Multicurrency if you have customers, suppliers, or bank accounts that don't use your home currency. Once it's on, you can add transactions in another currency and QuickBooks handles all currency conversions.

Note: You can assign a single currency to most types of accounts, including customers, suppliers, bank and credit card accounts, accounts receivable, and accounts payable. You will have to add a new account for each different currency that you use in transactions.

How to turn on Multicurrency

Step 1: Make sure Multicurrency is for you

Important: If you use the Cash Flow Planner, do not turn on Multicurrency. The Cash Flow Planner currently does not support companies with Multicurrency enabled, therefore you will lose access to the Cash Flow Planner and not be able to regain access (as you cannot disable Multicurrency once it's switched on).

Once Multicurrency is on, you can no longer turn it off.  If you’re not sure, reach out to your accountant.

Step 2: Set your home currency

Home currency is the currency your business generally uses for its transactions. It can be the currency where your business is located. Income and expense accounts always use your home currency.

When you set up QuickBooks, it automatically sets your home currency.

Step 3: Turn on Multicurrency

When you’re ready, learn how to turn on and use Multicurrency.
