Asset and Liability accounts that are entered in foreign currencies must be revalued every period in accordance with FAS52 (Financial Accounting Standards). The Revaluation program adjusts the value of the balance sheet accounts based on current period exchange rates. It then generates revaluation journals with adjustments to the defined unrealized gain/loss account. The Revaluation program generates adjustments in the Functional Currency. If you have a Reporting Set of Books you must run revaluation once for each Primary and Reporting Set of Books. The Revaluation generates a revaluation batch containing a separate journal for each foreign currency. The revaluation batch automatically has its reversal period set to the next accounting period. When you run revaluation for the next accounting period, you must reverse and post the last accounting periods revaluation batch first.

Translating Foreign Currency BalancesThe Translation process translates actual and budget account balances to another currency in accordance FAS52. The translation program uses three different exchange rates: period-average, period end, and historical. The translation program translates asset and liability accounts using the period end exchange rate, ownership/stockholder equity accounts using the historical exchange rate, and revenue and expenses accounts using period average exchange rate. The period average exchange rate is the average rate of all daily rates across the entire accounting period.
The profile option GL: Owners equity transaction rule effects how ownership stockholders equity account balances are translated. If the profile option is set to PTD, the net activity accounts of the accounting period are translated, then added to the corresponding prior period balances. If the profile set to YTD the balances, not the activities are translated and the translated amounts are the YTD Balances. There is no need to add the balances to previous balances.
