Try ERPNext Buy Support Partners Foundation

Multiple companies setup

I’ve created two companies:

  1. ABC (Default)
  2. XYZ

Both have their own

  • COA (Chart of Acct)
  • Item Groups & Item with their own: Default Income Account, Default Expense Account, Default Cost Center

But still all income is attributed to default company’s COA. Why? What are doing wrong?

I assume, there is no way to segregate Customers by company. Also, I did not see any option to segregate uses by company.



Multi-company in ERPNext is designed if you have common master data.

If your companies are completely different, you should setup different databases.

But what is common master data? and if all Sales & expenses are to be attributed to a single company only then what is the purpose of creating multiple co.?
Also, the Cost Centers do not work as designed
There is no option in SalesOrder or Sales Inv to select Income or CostCenter A/c?

Sorry don’t get your question.

You can select the Company in most of the sales / purchase / accounts transaction.

How can i setup separate database to use a different company ?
