A company owned but not necessarily operated by another company

Resources > Knowledge > Finance > Subsidiary

What is a Subsidiary?

A subsidiary (sub) is a business entity or Capriccio Satchel s Sabbia B Furla J9pIgmbc4
that is fully owned or partially controlled by another company, termed as the parent, or holding, company. Ownership is determined by the percentage of shares held by the parent company, and that ownership stake must at least 51%.

What are the Attributes of a Subsidiary?

A subsidiary operates as a separate and distinct corporation from its parent company. This benefits the company for the purposes of taxation, regulation, and liability. The sub can sue and be sued separately from its parent. Its obligations are also typically its own and are not usually a liability of the parent company.

The minimum level of ownership of 51% guarantees the parent company the necessary votes to configure the subsidiary’s board. This allows the parent to exercise control in company decision-making.

Parent and sub companies need not operate in the same location, nor be in the same line of business. Subsidiaries may also have their own sub companies; the line of succession forms a corporate group with varying degrees of ownership.


#1 Tax benefits

A parent company can substantially reduce tax liability through deducations allowed by the state. For parent companies with multiple subsidiaries, the income liability from gains made by one sub can often be offset by losses in another.

#2 Risk reduction

The parent-subsidiary framework mitigates risk because it creates a separation of legal entities. Losses incurred by a subsidiary do not readily transfer to the parent. In case of bankruptcy, however, the subsidiary’s obligations may be assigned to the parent if it can be proven that the parent and subsidiary are legally or effectively one and the same.

#3 Increased efficiencies and diversification

In some cases, creating subsidiary silos enables the parent company to achieve greater operational efficiency, by splitting a large company into smaller, more easily manageable companies.


#1 Limited control

A parent may have management control issues with its subsidiary if the sub is partly owned by other entities. Decision-making may also become somewhat tedious since issues must be decided through the chain of command within the parent bureaucracy before action can be taken.

#2 Legal costs

Lengthy and costly legal paperwork burdens result, both from the formation of a subsidiary company and in filing taxes.

Example of a Subsidiary Structure

One popular parent company in the digital industry is Facebook. Aside from being publicly traded on the open market, it also has multiple investment portfolios in other companies within the social media industry and is the parent firm of several software technology sub companies.

Examples of Facebook sub-companies are:
