What is Foreign Exchange Rate?

The term foreign exchange rate refers to the rate at which the price of the domestic currency is stated in terms of another country's currency.

Here, the foreign exchange rate compares one countries currency with another nation's currency to show their relative value.

All the standardized currencies across the globe float in value with their demand, supply, change in their values over time, consumer confidence and so on.

For Example: Way back in 2011, the value of the 1 U.S. dollar was worth at around Rs 48. But in 2022, the value of 1U.S.$ is equivalent to around Rs 73. Over 10 years, the value of the U.S. currency has surged.

Meaning of Foreign Exchange Rate

The concept of globalization has spread deeply across most of the nations in today’s era and hence most of the companies are diversifying their scale of operations from the county of origin to other countries spread across the globe gradually. The change in the currency rate will affect different markets investing power drastically.

Most of the multi-national companies use typically one reporting currency to prepare their financial statements. For Example, A U.S. based company has to prepare financial statements like balance sheet, income statement along other related reports in terms of the United States of America dollar.

Some of the companies do generate multiple financial statements converted in different currencies for investors who are spread across the globe.

For instance: The usage of the foreign exchange rate will help to record some of the business events between multi-national business houses. One U.K. based manufacturer might award a contract for some of its work to a company based out in Japan that sells goods in Yen. Since the U.K. based company cannot report the purchases made in terms of Yen, it has to convert the purchases price from Japanese Yen to U.K. Pound Sterling to enter relevant entries into the accounting system.

The foreign exchange rate also has its share of cons. What will happen if a U.S. based company signs a contract to purchase goods in terms of the U.K. Pound, but before the payment is issued, the U.S. dollar value falls compared to the Pound? Then the U.S. based company will have to shell out more for the goods. Hence hedges play an important role when dealing with different country’s currencies.
