Hi John,
That is an interesting  idea. This should be technically possible (not sure you do not have to inhibit some rules but other than that it should be OK).
You might get some side effects though: for example all company will have exact same numbering etc. which can be confusing sometimes for reporting (In multi-company environment, I am used to one set of CoA with unique code adding a letter per company).
You will still have to set up your company properties for any company (even if you provide every time the same account).
The consolidation reporting might be difficult to read as well as you cannot identify the company from the accounts.

Let us know if you succeed!

Hello All,

I am trying to find a way to share a SINGLE chart of accounts with multiple companies, in my multi company configuration.

Is this possible?

What are the pros and cons to doing this?

The chart of accounts that I have developed is comprehensive, and covers all the possible accounting needs across all companies.

Thank you all
