How to Handle Multi-Currency in Tally ERP 9

Many Organizations have transactions in more than one currency. Such transactions have to be
recorded either in the base (home) currency or in the foreign currency. If the transactions are
recorded in home currency, the rate at which the foreign currency is exchanged should be recorded as well.

Tally.ERP 9 allows you create and transact in multiple currencies. Tally.ERP 9 uses the term base currency for the currency in which your account books are kept. Foreign Exchange is used interchangeably with foreign currency. The base currency is specified while creating the company.

Tally.ERP 9 makes it easy to manage multiple currencies, automatic calculations of exchange
rates, automatic conversion of any currency used to record a transaction to the currency of the
account, etc. You can generate an invoice for your foreign customers in their currency and also
receive payments in the same or different currency. The impact of gain or loss in Forex is reflected immediately. You can also view and print Reports and Ledger Accounts in the currency of the transaction that has been entered or base currency.
