If you run more than one company/business, unfortunately there is no direct feature to enable you operating them both from the same Albert account - particularly if you prefer to keep different invoice numbering systems for each company.* Therefore, the simplest thing to do would be to create a second, separate account for your second business, using a different email. 

However, if you prefer not to have to log in and out of accounts every time you need to switch businesses/companies, then here’s another workaround solution you can use, whereby you can remain logged into the same account. It is a bit fiddly though, so bare with!

When you’re creating a new invoice (on the invoice creation screen), tap ‘More’ at the bottom right-hand corner and select the top ‘Business’ option (see first image below, for reference). Then amend this field to contain the correct business name for your second company/business. Please note: each time you alter the info in this field, it will remain the same until the next time you choose to alter it. Therefore this process has to be repeated manually each time you wish to switch business.** 

*[Please note: no two invoice with the same invoice ref. number can co-exist in the same account.]

**[Please note: you can also change these details in the exact same way via your settings in the app, which can be accessed from the home screen via the profile icon in the top left-hand corner. However, it’s simpler to just change it via the ‘More’ option on the invoice creation screen, because that way you can do it as and when you need to, and as you are creating a new invoice.]

Then amend this field to contain the correct business name for your second company/business (see image below, for reference). Please note: each time you alter the info in this field, it will remain the same until the next time you choose to alter it. Therefore this process has to be repeated manually each time you wish to switch business.**

The next thing to do (if you use differing invoice ref. numbering systems for each company) would be to make sure you also change the invoice number to match the company/business you are invoicing from, before sending the invoice. To do this, simply tap on the invoice reference number (in the bottom left-hand corner of the invoice creation screen) and edit it accordingly (see image below, for reference). 

Please note: like the ‘Business Info’, this invoice number field will automatically continue to the next number in it’s sequence, until you manually change it again, such as when you need to switch back to your other company again. This process must be repeated each time you switch companies, so be sure to not get confused between your different invoice numbering systems and to use the wrong invoice number for the wrong business! Otherwise, technically using this method will accommodate for  as many businesses/companies as you wish to alternate between.
