Do I need to be a System Administrator in my current Deputy organisation to add a new business?
No, existing users of Deputy (with any access level permission) can login to their global profile to add another business in Deputy. If you add a new business, you will automatically become the System Administrator of that new business regardless of your access level in the first Deputy account.
Can I change which country a business is associated with?
No. It is not possible to change which country a business is first associated with after it has been created. If this action needs to be taken, it is recommended to create a new business. The only opportunity to associate a country with a business is during its initial creation.
