I'm not sure whether I've not configured something properly (or not seeing smth perhaps??) - when creating a taxes and charges master, there's no place to define in what currency the charge is.  As such, when creating a purchase order for a product I purchase abroad, for example, I need to put the foreign shipping in foreign currency and local shipping (or other charges) in local (company) currency.

The order calculates the product totals (input in foreign currency) correctly, but things become more complicated when needing to use mixed currency charges before the order total.

Is there a way to do this?

What is the use case?

A transaction is designed to be only in one currency at the moment. I am not sure if you can add taxes / charges in different currencies in the tax table. You may have to convert them to any one currency and add them. (In your accounting ledgers, only the company currency is recorded).

Hi Rushabh,

The use case is really just what I mentioned in the original post: when creating a purchase order for a product I purchase abroad, I need to put the foreign shipping in foreign currency and local shipping (or other charges) in local (company) currency. The products are already in USD but all charges need to be put in my local currency (CLP), when they are generated in USD.

I understand that my ledgers are recorded in company currency, but I still need to be able to input the real cost (in USD) before they are convereted to local currency. It is exactly the same as being able to set an input product (for purchasing) in USD, because I buy it in USD, but it is then converted to CLP when I purchase, to be recorded in my company ledgers at the exchange rate I set.

From what I understand, then, I will have to convert manually every time...

You are absolutely right, the system is not designed to input taxes and charges in suppliers currency. You have to convert charges into company currency to enter them. But you will get print in suppliers currency.
