Questions & Answers
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.
A: If you click Summary View a Business Revenue and Expense with surplus is displayed this is a Profit and Loss based on the entered transactions. There is no Balance sheet function.
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. See http://bas-i.com.au/questions.html?item=28 for some more info.
Q: I need to generate several passwords at one time for different visitors in order for them to access 1 webpage where there will be a download for them. Could you please help me with that?
A: In standard operation Password Page Protection Software applies a single password for all access and all user/page access is covered by the same password, if the page accessed is the same for all then having a single access password for all users is generally suitable. There is also a Use Password Not Set function that allows users to set their own password however it is not as secure. For details see https://bizpep.com/password/
Q: I have just started inputting for the 2015-16 tax year. I cleared the income and expense sheets from last year. Inputted expense fine, but income will not show the GST or work out the tax. How can I fix this?
A: It sounds like when you cleared your data you may have also cleared formula which do the calculations. Input is in the blue cells only and if anything else is deleted you could overwrite formula and the calculations will be corrupt. So to fix you can revert to your last year file (assuming it is all good) and then just delete the inputs in the blue cells or you can download a new clean file and use that https://bizpep.com/basbusinessaccounts.html .
