Daily exchange rates import for Exact Online

Entering exchange rates repeatedly is necessary when you conduct a significant amount of business in foreign currencies with countries outside the Euro area. Invantive's currency toolkit imports daily exchange rates into one or more Exact Online companies.

Exact Online is a powerful accounting package for your company. You can specify the accounting currency for each company. When entering sales invoices, purchases and other transactions, Exact Online records the original currency and the amount. Exact then translates the foreign currency amount to the value in your accounting currency. Using current exchange rates, you can analyze your financial results more effectively and assess currency risks.

  1. Open currency-toolkit.invantive.com in the browser.
  2. Choose the Exact Online country where the company/companies are located.

  8. Use the 'Import' button to update the exchange rates in your Exact Online company. Already existing exchange rates will be left unchanged.

Exact Online Companies Using Euros

For Exact Online companies in Euros, the ECB daily published exchange rates for foreign currencies are imported. These ECB daily exchange rates are completed by Invantive with the daily exchange rates from Open Exchange Rates for the days and foreign currencies for which ECB does not issue rates. In total, exchange rates for 210 foreign currencies are available for the past 20 years. In total more than 4 million exchange rates are ready to be imported when necessary.

Exact Online Companies Using Another Currency

For Exact Online companies using currencies other than the Euro such as British Pounds and US Dollars, the latest known exchange rates from Open Exchange Rates are used with 210 foreign currencies. The exchange rate with the Euro is added using ECB data where available.

Template company?

You can also import exchange rates into an Exact Online template company. Template companies are often used by accountants to set up and keep the master data of companies uniform. When configured correctly, exchange rates are then automatically imported in all companies based on the template. Processing exchange rates through a template administration saves time and ensures uniform administrative processes. The Exact Online helpdesk and consultants will be happy to help you set up a template administration.
