The ACE team published the ACE Blueprint – ERP Enterprise Structures ppt in June 2020. We have a very complex structure at the client that I'm working with where they have a mix of central and global procurement. They operate in many countries throughout the world. They have very strict rules related to tax and data partitioning that require specific sold to legal entities on the PO documents and ultimately on the AP invoices.

In the current structure, multiple Legal Entities map to a single BU and a single ledger. 

Users are assigned to a single legal employer and business unit on their HR records and this is setup as their default requisitioning BU. The majority of what is being purchased is indirect material and in a lot of cases, they ship to one-time addresses. Out of the box, there are two options to defaulting the sold-to legal entity on the PO.  We have chosen specifically not to assign legal entities to ship to/deliver to organizations. Therefore, the only way to default the sold-to legal entity is by the default legal entity requisitioning BU. 


Howdy, Stranger!
