A company in Fathom links to a single company file or entity in your accounting system.
In Xero for example, a company is referred to as an organisation. So one Xero organisation will become a single company in Fathom. Similarly, a single QuickBooks Online company will equate to a single company in Fathom. A company loaded from an Excel file also counts as a single company in Fathom.
If you have imported divisions for a company (also called classes, tracking categories, departments, locations, categories, depending on the accounting software), then these are brought into Fathom as part of the single company. They are not charged for separately.
It is possible to import a division as a 'stand-alone' company. Customers usually do this if they would like to add a budget to a division or use it in a consolidated group or benchmark group. When a division is imported as a stand-alone company, it is charged for separately.
Consolidated & Benchmark Groups
Consolidated groups and benchmark groups are not included in company count or pricing. Our standard plans are only billed on the number of imported companies - only the underlying entities in a group will contribute to the overall company count.
An excel eliminations company will count as a single company in Fathom for billing purposes.
