Remove Accountant's Copy restrictions from a company file

You need to cancel an Accountant's Copy.
Important: Consult with your accountant before you remove the Accountant's Copy restrictions. If you decide to remove the restrictions you will not be able to import your accountant's changes, instead you must make the changes by referring to a printed copy or redo the entire process.
