E-Business Tax Information Center > EBTax Integration With EBS Modules > Legal Entity Manager > Note 1064366.1

This note was authored to provide a detailed example of the steps required to add a new Legal Entity to an existing instance.  The scenario covered is the addition of a new country to an already configured application environment. 

The original onus for this note was to provide expanded guidance for a customer attempting to configure E-Business Tax for Canada using Case Study <Note 577996.1>.  The steps documented within this note should also hold true for other scenarios outside of E-Business Tax.  Note that this is not intended to serve as a comprehensive note on setting up Legal Entities, Ledgers and Operating units.  Rather this is attempting to show how these objects are linked together and in doing so, remove some of the potential confusion that exists when performing this setup using the various implementation manuals for HR, GL, Legal Entity and Tax.
