Questions & Answers
Q: Is there a quick way to change the send email address from the person who completes the form to a single generic email address?
A: No, however if you do not have a Defined Email Address Form Field in your form the sent email will be the generic server address (format depends on server). However this could increase the chance the email will be treated as spam and may not function on all servers.
Q: Just sorting my BAS and wonder if you have a provision for wages/payroll? Wages and Super are non GST right?
A: You can include wage accounts by selecting Include Wages from the tax setup options when you click the arrow down icon at the top beside the Business Name button. This will add wage related tax items and accounts you can then use these to record wages and they will be applied as wages in your BAS (no gst).

Q: I'm looking to buy the BAS spreadsheet. Will I be able to add a column or two in the input area (eg date, sub-account ) In other words am I able to modify at all? Also, can I test this program on one PC then use it on another?
A: You can add a sheet and then link back to different fields as required and then set up that sheet however you like. You can also use on different pc's .. the license is per user so if you are a single user you can install on different devices using the same registration code.
Q: I recently purchased this software for the simplicity it offers. Question - does the software have the ability to generate Profit & Loss statements and Balance sheets form the information entered.

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 http://bas-i.com.au/questions.html?item=25 . 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.
