Hi, Kerry here from MyQuickBookKeeping.

Today is a very quick video to show you how to turn on multicurrency in your QuickBooks Online file.

From the cog at the top right corner, select”Accounts and Settings”  on the left hand tab choose “advanced”

Scroll down to “currency”.

You will see the “home currency” displayed,  this is the currency all of your reports will be shown in.  Currently multicurrency is turned off – to turn it on choose the edit pencil on the right hand side3.

Check the “multi currency” box.

Read the warnings – you can’t change it back, and you can’t change your home currency.

Now you can “manage currencies”  This will show a list of the currencies that are currently set up for use in your file.  If you would like to use another currency you can add it here.

Note that if you are operating in another country I can set up a QuickBooks Online file for you that has the language, currency, and taxes for your country.  Check with me – I haven’t found a country I cannot set up a file for yet!

When you are sure this is what you want to do check the extra box and save.

You can now record transactions in different currencies.
