What is the best practise for a multi-currency setup?

I am setting up OpenERP for a company which has retail operations in 2 countries. Each country has a local warehouse. Sales in each country are subject to local taxes and currency.

What would be best practice under this scenario? Should we be using a single company and changing the currency and tax on sales orders by something like pricelists. Or are we better having 2 companies and changing company for each sales order? It appears you can only change company via preferences rather than specifying on the sales order, is there a reason for this?

Were they not obligated by law to establish themselves as a distinct company in each country?

You should set up two companies (well really you must if you want to avoid huge issues) each with it's own default currency warehouses etc.

The logic in OpenERP is that a user works in a company, so processes all transactions for that company.
