Loss on foreign exchange

I live/work in Australia but regularly receive payments from NZ and Japan.  If I issue an invoice for AU$500, due to the whole foreign exchange thing, the actual amount that arrives in my bank account will never be $500.... it's always off by a few dollars.

Currently I just go back and change the original invoice amount to match the bank deposit but I don't like this method as it reduces my turnover and accurate reporting of turnover is an important part of my business strategy.

How do I properly account for gain/loss in foreign exchange?
