Multiple currencies and your Categories screen
As well as seeing a category for your base currency currency, you’ll also see a category which shows the gain or loss exchange.
A gain or a loss happens when an exchange rate changes between the time an invoice is issued, and when it is paid.
For example, if your business normally uses British Pounds (GBP), and you have a transaction in US Dollars (USD). When you view your categories table in Pandle, the gain/loss category obviously won’t include any transactions which are dated after the end of the date range that you’re looking at.
When you view a date range which includes those transactions, the gain/loss category will show any gains or losses that happened as a result of the currency exchange rate changing between the date the invoice was created, and the date the invoice was paid.
