How to Manage Unrealized Currency Gain/Losses in Odoo 16 Accounting

Functional Odoo 16 Accounting

Unrealized concerns open items in your balance sheet like invoices, bank accounts, and bills not paid yet in a foreign currency. These currency rates vary all time once the open amounts in books need to be revalued at fiscal year-end depending on company preferences. Identifying the potential gain or loss as per the difference between the currency rate at the accounting date of an open commodity and the rate at the end of a fiscal period is essential. This difference is uncertain, and the reporting goal is to represent at the end of each period the most realistic image of a company's financial situation. In Odoo 16, we can do this with a manual trigger on specific reports, and you need to reverse the entry at the beginning of the new period.

Once we receive the vendor bill in foreign currency, we must convert it to home currency. So, at the invoice date, 100 dollars might be worth 95 euros. However, the currency rates vary each time, and 100 dollars are not worth it once the payment becomes later. This is a realized part of the currency gain/loss use case. An unrealized one is quite the opposite of realized currency gain/loss. Now, let’s see the working of unrealized gain/loss in the Odoo 16 Accounting.
