At Coddan Formations Agency, we can help you navigate the tricky road of forming a subsidiary/daughter company.

What is a subsidiary company? In the United Kingdom, a subsidiary company classification can be given to a company if the holding company has the majority of the voting power, or the authority to remove or appoint its board of directors. Business owners - especially those operating overseas - often register new divisions as a subsidiary to minimise the liabilities of the holding company.
