if you are new to SAP SD, copying an existing sales organization will reduce your time and efforts in making additional definitions and assignment.
let's say you want to create a new sales organization ZZ01. you can copy from an existing one, say, 0001. the advantage is if the sub-assignments and settings (e.g. sales org address set up, sales areas, sales doc assignments, etc.) are to be copied as well, then this option is preferred.
however, there are trade-offs. when you do the copy option, you also copy the organizational structure (and other SD related assignments) of 0001. let's say 0001 has sales area of
0001 + 01 + 01
0001 + 01 + 02
0001 + 02 + 01
0001 + 02 + 02
you will find that you will have copied these as well, even if they are not your requirement. you will find that your sales org will have the following sales areas
ZZ01 + 01 + 01
ZZ01 + 01 + 02
ZZ01 + 02 + 01
ZZ01 + 02 + 02
copying sometimes increases 'clutter data' in your system. anyway, you can delete these un-needed sales areas and other assignments later on. while experienced SD consultants prefer to define sales organization 'from scratch', i still find it more convenient to just copy and change/delete the values later on.
