Multi-booking, who cares…not me! 

Normally, if you don’t have multi-booking, you implement the basic currency of the country. Besides the different statutory charts of accounts there, are of different currencies; Brazilian Reals, Peruvian soles, American dollar, etc. You can do the financial consolidation using the consolidate change rate, but you lose all the visibility of what is going on within your subsidiaries out of it. That’s WHY having multi-booking is life-changing. Productivity, time and reliability… that’s what you get in implementing multi-booking within your company! Amazing, isn’t it?

But I’ve been using single books for each country I’ve been operating in for decades… I feel like I won’t be able to switch to multi-booking!

You’re 100% wrong! Switching to multi-booking is totally possible and way easier than you think! A few weeks ago, we were discussing that change with a new customer who had been implementing NetSuite for 30 years, and now he’s implementing our tax compliance solution in Argentina…they want to use multi-booking for Argentina! That client wanted to have his primary book in US dollars, through consolidating in a way he could drill down to the transaction. But he hadn’t done that for the rest of the subsidiaries. He actually had set up primary books in functional currency, and as a secondary book in US dollars. Now operating in a new country, we want to gain in productivity and to get reliable data, easily and in a short matter of time. LatamReady is here for it!
