Registration of a Subsidiary

A subsidiary, or DP, is a company whose sole founder is another organization. In other words, the subsidiary is not a branch of the parent company, although it is entirely dependent on and subordinate to the founder.

DP is a full-fledged legal entity, and therefore an independent taxpayer. A parent company can only be called a holding company when it has a controlling stake in the subsidiary. Both companies have organizational and economic responsibilities.

The parent company (together with reports on its business operations) provides consolidated financial statements.

It also determines the charter of a subsidiary, gives it the right to use the property, a number of powers, functions. So, it has its own bank accounts, a seal and a separate balance. It concludes contracts itself and is responsible for fulfilling the obligations specified there.

There are two types of dependence of a subsidiary on the main one:

  1. Decisive.A relationship is established between the two companies, where the parent company controls and the subsidiary company reports.

    A controlling stake is concentrated in the hands of the main organization, it participates in meetings and other governing bodies, authorized capital. This type of relationship is possible if there is a permission from the Antimonopoly Committee.

  2. Simple.A subsidiary of an enterprise does not have the right to make decisions independently – without the participation of the parent organization.

Documentation for setting up a subsidiary

In order to register a subsidiary the founding company must submit documents to the government registrar, including a duly completed application for permission to register the subsidiary.
