SAP FI - Posting Rounding Differences

While clearing Financial Accounting documents that have been posted in a foreign currency, you can post the rounding differences that arise to a separate revenue/expense account. Earlier these differences were displayed as exchange rate differences at the time of clearing.

Rounding differences can be posted to the General Ledger account as Expense or Revenue.
