Transaction currency vs reporting currency

Transaction currency is the currency used for invoices and payments. It is common for companies with global businesses to have multiple transaction currencies.

Reporting currency is the currency used in financial statements and reporting. Most companies will choose a single reporting currency, to which various transaction currencies will be converted. For large companies with international subsidiaries, different reporting currencies may be selected among subsidiaries.
