Accounting for, measuring, and managing currency risk for small to early-enterprise companies.

As companies grow their global operations, they can create both transaction and translation currency risk for the U.S. parent company. Exposures can be the result of foreign currency-denominated payables, receivables, or paid-in capital to subsidiaries. Join us as we host the currency risk management experts from Corpay to speak to our community on a topic that has become more important as businesses expand their teams globally in a remote-first world. 

We’ll discuss accounting treatment for foreign exchange denominated transactions and capital, general suggestions for how to measure the risk, and some of the tools that companies can use to manage that risk. Understanding your currency exposure and options to manage it can help you avoid unexpected impacts on your bottom line.
