I am tracking a business with a subsidiary (“dba” or “fictitious name”) which has its own name, logo, and phone number.
So far, I’m using tracking codes to allocate various income and expenses. For printed items, it happens that one portion currently needs to print only invoices. Therefore, I created a custom invoice for it with a hard-coded business name and phone number and a base64 image for the logo. This works ok, although as noted elsewhere, I lose much of the invoice intelligence by using an HTML template. Also, it won’t help in the future if I need to print more than invoices for both parts of the business.
Ideally, I would like to be able to choose business info/logo based on the tracking code, or even some way for a Manager business to contain a sub-business that is a separate company but gets combined into the books of the parent company.
In the meantime, is my current procedure the best available, for now?
