About multi-account and legal entities

Learn what it means to manage multi-accounts and legal entities within the platform

Keep in mind the distinction between workplaces and legal entities: a workplace is more focused on the physical aspect of where work takes place, whereas a legal entity encompasses the entire legal structure and identity of an organization.




Multi-account is the system that allows users to manage several companies that have no relationship between them, within Factorial.

Lucie, a freelance recruiter, has chosen Factorial HR as her platform to streamline her day-to-day administrative procedures. Since Lucie works with several companies that have no relationship between them, she has opted for the Multi-account option. This is how Lucie, as a single user, manages all her different company accounts.

How to access from one account to another

Remember that you can find your employees in the Employee section of the company account to which they belong. So, to visualize them, you need to first access the account in which they were created.
