Hello,

1. For concurrency you need to use Local temp table only i.e. (#) NOT Global temp table (i.e. ##).
Please note, if you will use ## then DB engine will give an error in case concurrent execution same procedure by multiple users
There is already an object named '##...' in the database

2. Indexes performs same on both.

Kindly take a look over it and let me know in case you have any concern.
