You must have the multi-company module installed.

Then, go to Settings > Companies and create several companies.
Then, go to Accounting > Configuration > Accounts > Accounts and the field "Company" on each account will allow you to maintain independent charts of accounts for each company.

Thanks. Is the Multi-Company module available on the SAAS edition?

Waqar, yes it's possible. You should use analytic accounts for that.

Considering you can organize your analytic accounts the way you want and create reports based on them the same way you create reports on regular accounts. Yes, it's possible.
