New Feature: Foreign Currency Bank Accounts

Hi all,

We’ve recently added the ability to maintain foreign currency bank accounts
in FreeAgent, and as a result have updated the API to both expose this and
allow the creation of foreign currency accounts.

Bank accounts returned from the API now have an additional ‘currency’ XML
node/JSON key, and the POST and PUT actions take a ‘currency’ parameter
should you wish to create an account in a foreign currency or change the
currency of an existing account (providing it has no transactions).

Opening balances and transaction values should be posted in the account’s
currency (i.e. if the account is in USD, then
opening_balance/gross_value/manual_sales_tax_amount etc. should be USD
values).

Documentation for the bank accounts endpoint has been updated
accordingly: https://dev.freeagent.com/docs/bank_accounts

Hope that’s useful to everyone. If you’ve got any questions related to
this, post them here and I’ll do what I can to answer them.

Paul.

“hope this is useful” - oh hell yes. Time for a quick update to mobileAgent

Not at all - better to have it in, and it’s a very easy, quick change.On Thu, Jun 12, 2014 at 11:10 AM, Paul Smith paul@freeagent.com wrote:
