Create a new base currency journal entry. Journals can be created one at a time and the POST message will respond with the ID assigned to the newly created journal.

The taxDate is interpreted as midnight at the start of the day in the account's timezone. Time and timezone information should not be included in this field; the format must be yyyy-mm-dd.
