When using QuickBooks Desktop Multi-Currency, there are a few limitations based on your export options. 

  • Vendor bills and Checks: The vendor currency and the account currency have to match but do not have to be in the home currency. 
  • Credit Card: Expenses that don't match an existing vendor in QuickBooks export to the Credit Card Misc. vendor that we create. When you try to export a report in a currency other than your home currency, the transaction will be created under the vendor currency with a 1:1 conversion. A transaction in Expensify for $50 CAD will show in QuickBooks as $50 USD.
  • Journal Entries: Multi-currency exports will fail as the account currency has to match both the vendor currency and the home currency.
