Foreign exchange rate application

Every tax jurisdiction dictates which exchange rate source must be applied to invoices and reports and which time point to use (time of invoice, time of the transaction, or end of the reporting period). Vertex Advantage provides a robust mechanism that allows you to source and apply the correct rate for every sale.
