Currency Converter

What is a Currency Converter?

In Acuity, Law Firms have the ability to create or upload invoices in their native currency, and to toggle back and forth between their native currency and their client’s default currency - typically the client’s default is US dollars. We will update exchange rates daily for currency conversion. Please note that while invoices can be uploaded in your native currency, timekeeper rates and budgets must be entered in the default of US dollars. 

Follow the below steps to get started. 

Add a New Timekeeper 

To upload a non-US invoice successfully, your firm will first need to enter timekeepers in Acuity for approval. The timekeeper rates must be entered in US Dollars and approved by the client. 

To add a timekeeper from the Landing Page, click the Create New Timekeeper action button, or click the FIRMS/VENDORS navigation link at the top of the page.  

On the firm profile page, click clipboard_e5cf84f8b55525a30ce8a06bd43e076f1.png to open a new timekeeper profile window. 

  1. Enter all required information in the profile as follows: 

  • Name – first name, middle initial, last name 

  • TK Number – the identification number assigned by the firm’s time and billing system. This will match the TK ID included on the firm’s Ledes files. 

  • Status 

  • Email Address – Acuity uses this address to send notifications and communications from the client directly to the timekeeper. Do not use a generic email address. 

  • Office – if the firm has more than one office, this selection should match the home office of the timekeeper. 

  • CV/Resume 

  • Category – firms must select from the categories defined by the client 

  1. Enter requested billable hourly rate in US Dollars. 

  1. Enter the rate effective date. 

Note: The effective date must be the same as, or precede, any fees submitted for payment. 

       4. Click Create. 



  1. Acuity sends notices of new timekeepers to the client. 
  2. Acuity sends rate approval/rejection notices to the firm user who added the new rates. 

Note: Acuity does not approve rates.

  1. Quickly review the number of critical and non-critical exceptions on your invoice. You will have an opportunity to resolve these directly in your invoice.
