Subsidiary business

A subsidiary business is a business which is controlled by another business, referred to as its holding business. Control is usually achieved either by owning shares with more than 50% of the voting rights in the subsidiary, or by having the right to appoint directors to the Board who have a majority of voting rights on the Board.
