Question : System does not allow to contra the records of debtor and creditor that are in different currencies at ARAP Contra. What should I do if I wish to contra Debtor (USD) USD1000 with Creditor (MYR) MYR 4500?


Answer :

1) First, you must deal with both sides (companies) the amount agreed to be offset. For example: Debtor offset USD1000, Creditor offset MYR 4500.

2) Create A/R Credit Note USD 1000 for the Debtor A/C to knock off outstanding invoice. For the “Debit Account” you may choose Contra Account and tick ‘Is Credit Journal’. The currency exchange rate is 4.5000 (Calculation = 4500/1000) as agreed.
