Subsidiary GOVERNANCE

Establishing a group structure with subsidiaries can provide multiple benefits, such as protecting assets and expanding into new countries.

Good subsidiary governance is key to ensuring all the legal protections of limited liability remain in place should litigation arise. Without a good governance framework group structures can be treated by the courts as one single entity which would result in losses of financial security and risk protections. 

 

Consequently, it is imperative that subsidiary directors understand their duty of care when joining these structures and take appropriate actions to implement suitable subsidiary governance frameworks.
