MM Exh rate difference (KDM) - Realised or Unrealised Gain/Loss account


Dear Expert,

In the OBYC, i have question on the accounting entry for the MM-OBYC config on the KDM transaction key. The accounts should it be configured as realised or unrealised Gain/Loss?

My client configured the KDM as unrealised Gain/Loss which was not absolutely correct as this difference will be stayed always in the account and will not be cleared. From the business perspective, it should be unrealised Gain/Loss since the payment are not being paid to vendor.

However, if the KDM accounts are to configure as Realised Gain/Loss, it contradict the business scenario.

Can someone advise me which should be the correct account to be configured for the KDM from business and technical perspective?

Since the KDM account is activated, can i deacvtivate it and post the difference to material / consumption account instead (base on standard posting)?

Please kindly advise and thank you very much in advance.
