Why foreign currency valuation is required ?


I just want to clear my doubt. If we deal with foreign vendors or customers like vendor invoice is done through USD or EUR or GBP but payment is not made till now or customer invoices are done but payment is not received from them in month of August. In that case if we run foreign currency valuation of open vendor invoices and open customer invoices on 31st August it will generate accounting entry and next day i.e, 1st September accounting entry will be reversed. So my question is we have not received from customer and we have not paid to vendor, invoices are still open from customer and vendor side. So if we run foreign currency valuation what will be its actual effect in the business and if we not run foreign currency valuation what are the problems may arrises because later if we pay to vendor through foreign currency then actual loss / gain effect will arrise in our business scenario.

Kindly give me reply.
