I got a broad range of requests for currency "mode". It can be a fixed 
budgeted rate for a quarter or year (with gains/loss in year end), it 
can be a rate that are bought from a broker for a delivery, contract or 
project (pay to get stability), it can be predicted rate a month a head 
(post gains/loss per invoice, good predictions will minimize the 
difference). Average rate and at date are requested too. I'm not updated 
with the legal aspect, but I think the requests are based on guidelines 
from external auditors or internal controllers for different types of 
organisations. (Companies with a lot of import/export or with 
headquaters outside EU.
