1625369 - How System Determines Default Currency in Expense Report

Symptom

You create an expense report and have the receipt amount in such as USD. But after saving, you find the currency of reimbursement amount changes to such as CAD.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Travel and Expense work center.
  2. Select the Expense Reports view.
  3. Select and edit the respective expense report.

Cause

The cause for the issue is that the employee who is creating the expense report was hired in Personnel Administration for Canada, so although you create a expense report with different currency (USD) , the reimbursement amount will automatically be exchanged to his/her default country currency against system defined exchange rate on receipt date in spite of his/her working company.

Resolution

If you want the employee to be reimbursed in the currency of his/her working company (USA) then the employee must be terminated (from Canada) and re-hired with the respective country of employment (USA) in Personnel Administration.

Note: Country of employment is unrelated to the country in the Org Unit.
