Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Configuration Work center.
  2. Go to the Implementation Projects view.
  3. Go to the Project and Choose Open Activity List.
  4. Go to Integrate and Extend and search for Set of books.
  5. Go to Company Settings.


Since there are already postings in the past belonging to the Company,it does not allow you to change the Company currency in the New Fiscal year


It is recommended to create a new Company with new Company currency.

It is not suggested to create a new Set of Books in the existing Company as all source documents such as Customer/Supplier invoices, Deliveries, Goods/Services receipts are only posted as a Journal entry in existing Set of Books.For the new Set of Books we would need a kind of a Migration of this existing Source documents to get them posted in the new Set of Books as well. This type of Migration does not exist in the system.
