Reconcile a base currency payment with a foreign currency invoice or bill

Reconcile a statement line imported into your base currency bank account with a foreign currency invoice or bill entered in Xero.

    In this example, we've received payment into our NZD base currency bank account. The foreign currency of the invoice entered in Xero is EUR.
  1. In the Reconcile tab, next to the bank statement line you want to reconcile, click Find & Match.
