Hi santhosh,

I think its not necessary to create many databases. With one database, you can manage all your companies, independents one of another.

Exactly. Santhosh you should just create multiple companies in one Odoo database..

Hi Santhosh, Juan José, what are the differences between setting different companies with separate databases and different companies within the same database?

An accounting company is interested in using Odoo for its clients and we have to decide what option is the most time and cost saving. 

What are the restrictions with a one database environment?

I appreciate every input to give us more lights on where to move on.
