How can I change the local currency in my account?

I need to change the local currency in my account


Hi there, dvalverde.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help you with changing the local currency on your QuickBooks.

Here's how:

  1. Click on the Gear icon at the upper right corner.
  2. Choose Account and Settings.
  3. Click on Advanced.
  4. Look for the section labeled "Currency" and click it.
  5. Change the Home Currency to your preference.
  6. Select on Save.
  7. Click on Done.

However, if you've already turned on the "Multi-currency" feature, you can't change the home currency anymore. If that's the case, you have the option to wipe your company data, and redo the setup including the correct home currency. 

To know more about how currencies work in QuickBooks Online, please refer to this article:

Please let me know if you have any questions about these steps or with QuickBooks.  Have a wonderful day.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
