A note on Triangulation:
If on the occasion, there is a triangulation difference, Astral GoCardless would require you to transfer the Payout onto a Journal using the ‘Create Journal’ toggle.
An example of a triangulation difference would be if the base currency in Business Central is GBP, the bank account is in USD and the payment made is in EUR. As there is no currency exchange rate between the USD and EUR payment, the currency conversion occurs by converting the payment (EUR) into the base currency (GBP) and then for the system to convert the amount received in the bank account (USD) into the base currency (GBP). The system will then use the conversion rate between the bank and payment into the base currency as the basis to convert the Payment (EUR) to the bank account (USD).
If there is a difference converting this into the base currency, and a difference exists, Astral GoCardless will require the user to create a Journal and to post the triangulation separately to be sure that you are happy with the conversion.
For more information on Triangulation differences see the Currency Triangulation Differences Help section.
If 'Create Journal Lines' was not checked, the message in figure 4 will be displayed to confirm that the Payout has been posted.
