Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Separate legal entities means that the firm has distinct and separate existence from their members. Firm has capacity to sue and be sued, also it can own a property in its own name.

Firms with separate legal entity enjoys the privilege of borrowing funds for investment from the public as allowed by law, and they can also trade their shares in the public security exchange which expands their capital base.

Consolidated financial statements benefits these firms by increasing their profits, and this increase the amount of dividends to be allotted to the shareholders. Profitability of the entity is a key contribution towards investors attraction and building shareholders confidence.
