Any transaction entered using this routine can be analysed over several nominal accounts with one posting made to the bank account.
When dealing with foreign currency transactions:
The transaction currency and bank currency do not need to match. This means you can record a foreign currency transaction, even if you do not operate a foreign bank account in that currency.
Exchange rate variations are handled in the Foreign Bank Revaluation option in the Cash Book.
Nominal postings are in base currency. If the bank account is a foreign currency account, the default exchange rate set up in your exchange rate table is used to convert the value from the bank’s operating currency to base currency for the nominal postings.
If the transaction is non vatable, only one entry is posted to the bank account, representing the total of the nominal analysis lines.
