Xero - Multiple Chart of Accounts

The chart of accounts gives a high-level overview of the work your business does by listing all the accounts involved in your company’s day-to-day operations. A set of accounts are used by a company or organization to define and record the money (or the equivalent) that is spent or received in the business. 

They’re used to organize all transactions and to separate expenditures, revenue, assets, and liabilities so the company can have a clear understanding of the financial health of the entity. A set of accounts such as Xero’s chart of accounts lets you group transactions entered. It’s a filing system for all your transactions within the business. You can name and number your accounts which are usually called account number/accounts or general ledger (GL) codes.
