If the said foreign currency is not one of the currencies announced by Bank of Taiwan, such conversion should be made using the closing spot buying rate of this foreign currency announced by the major correspondent bank of the controlled foreign company at the end of each month (if such rate is not available, then use the cash buying rate), and convert it to any announced currency of Bank of Taiwan, and then processed according to the aforementioned provision.
