Electronic Bank Statement Exchange Rate Difference in Local Currency

Hello experts,

I have the following issue. When uploading EBS and the posting manually through FEBAN i have found one particular case:

- There is an open line item in local currency 955.52 PEN / 292.48 USD as second and third local currency

- In EBS is the corresponding bank operation for the open line item, but with different amount. The amount here is 956 PEN.

- In FEBAN after doing the posting manually, the document shows two lines created for exchange rate difference. One corresponding to the line with 956 PEN and one for the line with 955.52 PEN.

My question is: why system is creating lines for exchange rate differences in clearing document if the open line item is in PEN currency and the EBS is also in PEN currency?

The person who did the posting manually says that in this case the system should not allow the clearing because EBS and open line item have different amounts.

Thank you very much.

Best regards,

Check the tolerance group assigned to the GL and the limits specified there. if the item is within tolerance, it would clear and difference would be charged off to P&L

Hi Sanil,

I already checked tolerances, and the posting is not in the account specified for that, is the account for exchange rate differences.

We are handling local currency PEN, group currency USD and profit center currency USD.

I think this case has to be with some kind of currency translation among theses three valuations, so that is why the account posted if for exchange rate differences and not fo tolerance account.
