  • The holding company owing more than 50% or the voting rights in the company or subsidiary  company.
  • The holding company being able to appoint majority of the directors in the board of directors.
  • The holding company carrying out favourable transactions with the subsidiary e.g. sale and purchase of goods at  a price below the market value.
