hi ,

we have three types 3 types of exchange rates basically ( but can have as many exchange rates ) .

buying rate , selling rate , average rate ( M ) .

exchange rate will occur in import purchase or export .

import procurement .

1.when we create PO for forgein vendor , the default exchange rate ( M type ) will be displayed based on the document date .

2.when the material reaches to customs , duties will be calculated based on customs exchange rate ie ( M type rate ).

3.GR willbe valuated with the exchage rate which is attached to the material document type .

4.invoice will be valuated with the exchange rate based on the invoice document date .

5.payments to vendor wiii be done with spot rate


all sales will be valuated with selling rate .
