Setting Up a Multi-Entity Product

Most multi-entity organizations need the ability to take orders for all products sold by each entity in a seamless manner. From the customer's perspective, a single transaction exists with the organization even though products from more than one legal entity have been ordered. To enable this functionality, each product must be set up with the general ledger (GL) accounts that correspond to the correct organization.

For example, a customer should be able to order a product from the Associated Parent and the Associated Child organizations on the same invoice. To demonstrate this functionality, create two basic products that do not require inventory to be tracked. On the first, change the GL accounts which default from the Product Category chosen to reflect the Sales and accounts receivable (A/R) GL accounts specific to the Associated Parent. On the second product, change the GL accounts to reflect the Sales and A/R GL accounts specific to the Associated Child.
