Each company that exists in your database needs to be entered here. For security purposes only your FastBase support staff can add new companies.
If you require a new company within an existing database, see the documentation on Steps involved in creating a new company within an existing database.
Each company contains the following details:
Enter a unique 2 character identifier. Standard practise is to number the companies from 01 onwards.
Enter the company name, this appears on all reports and other forms.

Enter the above details, these will be used on some forms (eg: customer invoice, purchase order etc.). See Utilities - Stationery Layouts for details.
Specify the system currency; always NZD. Other currencies are supported and FastBase can be used in any country. Some business requirements may not be met in some areas.
Specify the default tax code, usually this is set to GST.
Financial Year Start:
Enter the financial year start date. For a balance date of 31/03 you would enter 01/04. The year that is entered is not important and will be ignored.
Enter 'Exclusive'. If your company supplies everything tax inclusive or with no tax then change the default to Inclusive or None as required.
Enter the default branch for all users. If there is only one branch then specify this here. See Utilities - Branches.
Each user can have a default branch specified which will override the company default. See Users.

Next Batch No:
This is the next batch number the company will allocate. There is normally no need to change this.
If the company cannot be selected for processing/data entry then disable the company.
A company cannot be easily deleted from the system so it is preferable that it is disabled when no longer in use.
