    USA Intercompany and GST

    Thanks Dave! I don’t think is technically an export because the services are being provided from an Australian company, to our Australian entity. The only reason US is involved is because we agreed to share these costs and we are the ones paying them, if that makes sense.

    USA Intercompany Currency Translations

    How are Intercompany balances translated into the reporting currency? If our German subsidiary translates their USD payable account to spot rate at the end of each month, that balance won't match with our receivable here cause we have the actual USD balance they owe. Should we just make them...
