Re: Multi-company > one default bank account

Thank you so much for your welcoming  feedback Holger and Sylvain:)

Indeed the French CAE accounting example (shared Journals, account, taxes ) seems to be exactly what we need - and we can use all the help we can get to port it from v12 to v16 as quickly as possible, with the goal of proposing and maintaining it as a 16 vertical cooperative fiscal host branch to the OCA/cooperative.

We have some funds (nonprofit scale though) to start spearheading the verticalization we need and we want to invest it in helping sylvain porting  the 4 base modules to start with, or in any simpler solution with same accounting functions:
We already have 3 other nonprofit hosts in pipeline and we’re convinced that the need for such structure is growing exponentially everywhere, not only in our cultural and activism domains but in all sorts of open source communities. Many of the most groundbreaking OS projects from allover the world are forced to use opencollective and such, and the OCA seems to be the most logical environment to offer a decentralized and mutualized alternative to them.

Thanks in advance for any feedback and/or pointers on how to achieve that as swiftly and sustainable as possible,
Lena && Tali

note that multicompany separates entities to some degree, but as soon as you 
allow any user of the child companies access to the configuration, they can 
undo all of this. The same if you install modules that allow users to run
