Incorrect foreign currency exchange rates auto uploaded by Quickbooks

Hi all,

I am located in Indonesia and the home currency is Indonesian Rupiah. The company operates multi-currency and this is turned on. Foreign currencies used are USD, AUD, GBP, EUR and SGD. With the exception of USD, all other foreign currency exchange rates are incorrect by a factor of 100. As an example and to keep it simple USD1 = Rp 14,121.5 which is correct. Looking at AUD1 = Rp1,029,634.9 which is completely incorrect and should be Rp10296.3. The other exchange rates mentioned are similarly wrong by the same factor of 100.

These exchange rates are automatically uploaded via Quickbooks and Markit!

I can manually adjust the exchange rates but this defeats the purpose of always having accurate market rates provided by Quickbooks and will be cumbersome.

Is there something wrong in the set-up somewhere that is causing this.

Would greatly appreciate your help.

Good day, steveH4650.

 

You're right. The exchange rate in QuickBooks Online is automatically updated and uses the most recent exchange rates from Markit.

 

We can perform some troubleshooting steps to see if this issue is due to a browser error. Let's start by using an incognito window and check the exchange rates from there. Here are some of the keyboard shortcuts:

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

We can also clear the cache since it can cause issues in QuickBooks Online. Lastly, make sure that the browser is updated or use a different one.

Hi Alex,

 

None of your suggestions worked.

 

The problem is at Quickbooks end where the exchange rates are out by a factor of 100 for GBP, SGD, EUR and AUD and possibly others when converting them to IDR home currency.   USD is strangely correct.

 

Home currency adjustments are irrelevant to the question.

 

If AUD1 = IDR10,300 then that is what should reflect in Quickbooks' AUTOMATICALLY uploaded exchange rates.  Instead in this example, the Quickbooks exchange rate is AUD1 = IDR1,030,000 and this affects all the foreign currency accounts accordingly.

 

The attached file shows the Currencies uploaded in Quickbooks. 

 

There must be a solution to this.  It is not user generated error, it is Quickbooks generated.

 

I hope you can resolve this for me.

 

Many thanks

As an additional option, if you deal with many multi currency transactions, explore to open a virtual account at TW and utilize the bank feeds. It offers a better exchange rate and a lower fee.
