The Legal Entity Controllers sit in Legal Entity Accounting and Review (LEAR) and are the main point of contact to the Stakeholder Managers for all financial information, including both routine and ad-
hoc requirements, related to a single or a group of Legal Entities.
LEAR’s purpose is to support the Group Finance team and the Regional Legal Entity Finance teams in the fulfillment of their reporting and governance responsibilities via the delivery of materially accurate, policy-
and GAAP-compliant core financials and baseline analytical review.
They are accountable (for a given Legal Entity or group of legal entities) for ensuring that financial reporting processes and controls in place within Financial & Management Accounting & Reporting (FMAR) are fit for purpose and that the quality of the outputs produced as a result meets stakeholder requirements (accurate, timely, etc.).
Legal Entity Controllers are within and part of the process owner organization.
