Stock value in SC and LC discrepancies
I’ve got in the system two different currencies Local Currency and System Currency. At some point the stock was “0”. I’ve checked the balance sheet at that point and Stock Account in LC was “0” but in SC was not “0”. I would expect both LC and SC is zero. Is it normal? How should I deal with that?

Hello Wojciech Domanski,
all transactions & balances are held in Local Currency (LC), system currency (SC) is simply an additional feature in the application that allows you to display the balances in reports in another currency.
Generally, transactions are posted with both LC & SC, where the exchange rate difference (FXD) between them is determined by the FXD defined for the posting date. Hence there may well be differences. You can easily account for these discrepancies in the SC using the Conversion Differences feature.
In earlier versions of SAP Business One, the FXD postings were done without parallel SC posting, so depending on the age of your database this issue may affect you as well.
If you need to adjust the SC balance manually, SAP Note 909074 may be helpful.
