Unrealised FX Losses treatment

Post by BrianCon »


Preparing consolidated Mgmt Accounts in GB£ and one of the entities is in US$ so I re-translate the BS at the closing month end rate for the consolidated accounts.
Query I have is how do I treat FX arising on re-translation of the P&L reserves brought forward from last year. Are these exchange losses realised or un-realised and regardless, do they have to be posted to the P&L or retained on the Balance Sheet?

P&L reserves brought forward are at their historic average rate for each year so aren't continually translated
