Indian Subsidiary Company Registration in India

A Subsidiary Company is also commonly known simply as a subsidiary or a sister company; and the company which practices control over it, is known as the parent company, or holding company. A subsidiary company can be controlled by the parent company partially or completely.

For setting up a subsidiary, the parent company must own at least 50% of the subsidiary. When the holding company owns 100% of the subsidiary then the subsidiary is known as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the parent company. Note that the subsidiary company of a foreign parent company is a separate legal entity, and the subsidiary company is obligated to function under the rules and regulations of the country where it is situated.
A company can be registered as a private limited or public limited company
