what exactly is a Legal Entity and Operating Unit?
ANS: According the Book or user guide definitions says:
GRE/Legal Entity: Use this classification to represent the following organizations:
Ultimate Legal Entity: this represents the enterprise, and typically, the enterprise is the highest (global) level of a business organization.
Legal Entity: this represents the designated legal employer for all employment-related activities. The legal authorities in a country recognize this organization as a separate employer. In an organization hierarchy, a legal entity may report to an operating company or to the ultimate legal entity.
Consolidated Legal Entity: this organization acts on behalf of multiple operating companies that are not legally registered, or simply on behalf of the enterprise in a country.
See Shekar the Legal Entity is taken under Classification is we know that the organization is going to show the Taxation to the Government. where as if u take typical UAE countruies here every store is an LLC and they submit the taxing for every store or shop.
Where as Operating Unit is generally used for the different lines of business which are under that Business GRoup
Say for an Example:
ABC is the Company name and that has its root in UAE, Qatar and Oman
then it is like ABC Business Group > UAE Legal Entity > REtail/Property/Furniture etc are the Operating Units.
Hope this information is helpful and clear to you or else let me know if you have any concerns.
Coming to the Company Code we use the code for the Inventory Organizations so that the clients will not get confused with the existing code and the system code so generally we use the same codes for it.
