Probably economics or plans to expand their customer base or focus area
E.g. to get around certain regulations that apply to companies of a certain size or larger. Or to get around labour agreements. Or to fuck around with where exactly the companies are registered and use tax incentives. Or to let one of the companies deliberately go bankrupt (probably the IT one) in order to outsource work to Cheapistan, but avoid paying the fired workers their termination pay.
Because they have different focuses and want them to pursue different goals. Its better than being monolithic and not doing anything well. In the USA when you found a company you have to list the focus/purpose of the company. The 2 companies you list sound like completely different companies.
Also, could be preparing to sell part off.
And everything that @Fast-nop said.
To fuck with laws and regulations.
To scoop up more money into someone's pocket
jassole15272yWhen the tax laws gets complex companies get complex.
mundo0351662ySeveral reasons, most common is, I think, when a company gets bigger and bigger and starts to have different products and serviced that no longer make sense ti have inna single roof, also accounting is easier when things make sense.
Another reason us better control of vision, mission, strategy and employees.
Different countries allow fir different strategies, I some you can just define sub groups inside, in others you have to officially split the company.
Also, if one company is delivering services or products to the other, you can deduct costs, do tax avoidance and even money laundry.
So yeah, several reasons.
wf3d142ySome kind of scheme for money funneling.
Why would a company (A) create another company (B) within itself?
Both companies are literally in the same building.
Company A is manufacturing plastic products and company B is all about company B's IT (sys admin, dev, etc.).
