Creating CPA's from Contract with Supplier with multiple legal entities
Summary: We have negotiated a national agreement with a supplier that has multiple legal entities. Depending on the service provided, we might be invoiced from any 1 of their 3 legal entities. We are struggling to turn this into purchasing documents. We want to be able to track all spend to the contract.
Content (required): We created the contract as buy-no lines. We added the supplier's main legal entity as the primary party and then their other 2 legal entities as 3rd parties. We could create a CPA for the Primary Party of the master contract. We tried to pull in the contract on a CPA with the supplier legal entity listed on the contract as a third party but that does not work. Since the supplier is invoicing under their various legal entities that have different tax ID's, we need to have the PO reference the appropriate legal entity to support 1099 processing. The PO will reference the CPA and carry the attached T&C of the contract.
