Presentation method-foreing branches, Financial Accounting

Presentation method (formerly closing rate or net investment method)

Under this method, the branch operates with a lot of degree of autonomy from the head office. This position is reflected by the fact that there are fewer transactions taking place between the head office and the branch.

Any exchange gain or loss arising from translating the results of branch should be transferred to the foreign  exchange reserve.

NOTE: The functional currency method is normally used because in most cases the branch is an extension of the head office and the presentation method should only be used if the examiner requires so.
