Q: I do the books for multiple small business. Is there a way to add two small businesses without deleting the records of the other?

A: There are a couple of options. You can use Back Up / Full Restore each time you want to work with a different entity which is basically saving (Back Up) the data to a file on your local system and then opening (Restore) it to work on it. See the Restore section at bas-i.com.au . This approach can also be used with files saved remotely see bas-i.com.au . Alternatively you can simply access BAS-I.C via a sub domain ie http: //www.bas-i.com.au . You can do this by adding a sub domain like mybiz. in front of your BAS-I.C Account Code url so it becomes something like http: //mybiz.bas-i.com.au?c=........ This sets BAS-I.C to a sub domain address and data is saved locally via the sub domain. In essence you can have multiple sub domains set for different entities and each data set is saved locally as an independent data set ie mybiz1.bas-i.com.au , mybiz2.bas-i.com.au etc. You should also always backup you data for each business on your local system and you could have a separate folder for each business. See bas-i.com.au for some more info.
