Day-to-Day Financial Management


Workday Financial Management can help you streamline your financial needs and objectives. They will present a comprehensive overview of their featured financial application.


Workday offers multicurrency capabilities so you can manage your company's financials from all angles. The ability to process financials in other currencies allows you to have a holistic view of your business, no matter where it takes place.

An American company based in USD can sell to a French customer and record the sale with a EUR denominated invoice.

Workday accounts for the impact of multiple currencies and helps you gain or lose in the right direction depending on your transactions and how they relate to your company’s currency.


A variety of sources contribute to currency flow into your operation, depending on the type of transaction. Customers and suppliers have their own currency, which Workday automatically populates on customer and supplier transactions.


Workday uses either your company currency or the one you have set for the payment election (if they differ).


Items incur different currency based on their use. Workday automatically converts items to the currency of the transaction, while other transactions stay in their respective company currency by default.


The currency of a transaction is determined by the transaction you are transacting. This currency remains static throughout the lifecycle of a transaction and can be found on the ‘My Transactions’ page.


After the transaction has been approved, Workday generates operational journals and converts the transaction currency, if different, into the company currency for accounting purposes.


No matter how detailed your record-keeping is, your journals always show the full picture. You can convert them to your company's currency. This conversion is displayed in decimal precision.


If you have to convert currencies for reporting purposes, then it's good to set up a translation rule with Workday. This will make sure that you can always stay on top of the latest fluctuations that might happen in currency conversion.


Banks can hold funds in their own currency in a bank account. When the account holder requests, the bank converts those funds to account dollars for withdrawal or transfer into another bank account.
