PO Receipts should have the possibility to enter currency and currency rate. There are many companies that doesn't work with purchase order and in the new version of Acumatica they are forced to calculate the unit cost of the products by hand.
- there is no price defined on the item and it has no operation on that product
- the base currency of the company is for example USD, but the invoice comes in EURO
- when I want to introduce the purchase receipt I have to calculate by hand my cost (convert the invoice value from EURO to USD) because on the purchase receipt I have no longer the possibility to select the currency - the purchase receipt must be introduced in the base currency - and this operation isn't acceptable. If I don't make this calculation my item will enter the warehouse with cost 0.
You can introduce the bill first and generate the adjustment to modify the cost of the items, but someone can easily consume a part/ all of the quantity received and so all the cost of the receipt will go on an expense account - so in accounting terms this isn't correct.
