Each company that exists in your database needs to be entered here. For security purposes only your FastBase support staff can add new companies.

Each company contains the following details:

Company Id:
Enter a unique 2 character identifier. Standard practise is to number the companies from 01 onwards.

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.
