Bug Description

The consolidation of financial accounts in different currencies does not work.

We have a multi-company/currency setup with 3 different branches (CHF, EUR, USD) and holding (parent) company with consolidation accounts. The system calculates a total balance for the consoidation account but does NOT consider the currency exchange rates for consolidated children.

- Asset Branch 1: 10'000 CHF
- Asset Branch 2: 20'000 EUR
- Asset Branch 3: 30'000 USD
- Assets Holding: 60'000 CHF (Internal Type = Consolidation)

Furthermore, the balance of consolidation accounts are not visible for its parent account:

Balance Holing 0.0 CHF !!! (parent, view account)
 - Assets Holding 60'000 CHF (Internal Type = Consolidation)
 - Liabilities Holding -20'000 CHF (Internal Type = Consolidation)

With the given documentation we were really expecting that these scenarios are supported.Of course we have the multi-company accounting module installed (v5.0). Do you know what is problem here?

Thank you.

I think this cannot really be fixed into stable because of your release policy :( !

We already coded this as a module called "c2c_multi_currency_consolidated_chart".

What you can do to help is porting this features into trunk, the same way we coded it for 5.0. This was review by an accountant, so you can trust the computation.

Let me know if you gonna port this into trunk or not, and if you may even accept this in the core for 5.0.

Thanks in advance,
