Fundamentals is an embedded Business Central App, meaning that the changes to enable accounting for nonprofits and governments are made throughout the base application. As such, you will start with a fully integrated database from Tangicloud versus adding objects into a base BC database.


Fundamentals is focused on financial functions using the Business Central Essentials edition.
