Fakturierung im Außenhandel


  • Udo Broll

  • Jack E. Wahl


Ein Thema, das in der jüngeren außenwirtschaftlichen Literatur zunehmend Beachtung findet, ist die Wahl der Währung, in der internationale Handelstransaktionen abgerechnet (fakturiert) werden. Es geht um die Frage, ob ein international tätiges Unternehmen den Preis für Güter oder Dienstleistungen in heimischer Währung oder in einer Fremdwährung setzen soll, wenn ein Wechselkursrisiko zu beachten ist. Der Schwerpunkt dieses Beitrages ist eine Analyse der Währungsverwendung im Außenhandel. Der Beitrag stellt aktuelle empirische Daten zur Währungsverwendung im Außenhandel einzelner Länder vor. Die ökonomische Analyse beschäftigt sich mit der Entscheidung für eine Fakturierungswährung anhand eines heimischen Exportunternehmens mit Preissetzungsspielraum bei Wechselkursrisiko. Darüber hinaus wird die Währungswahl untersucht, wenn mehrere Exporteure auf einem ausländischen Markt konkurrieren.
