Trying to understand reasons for a FX loss


Hi All,

Firstly our LC is same as SC.

We have run the exchange rate differences tool and it has posted a huge £30k loss against the expect gains. We need to understand where the loss has been driven from, i.e exact transactions involved.

I can't seem to find any reports which give a break down of it's calculations?

Separately, what we find worrying is that it revalued our stock (GBP) lower from the exchange rate calcuation when we have never bought stock in euros. We do sell to BP's who are set to Euros and I understand transactions are conducted therefore in FC, but how a GBP stock account managed to devalue after a posted stock take is beyond me.

any ideas to these two questions? all help appreciated.
