associated entities

Associated entities are different businesses or organisations that are connected to each other like one company owning or having control over another, especially when it comes to transferring business operations.

Associated entities refer to businesses or bodies that have a relationship or connection, often in terms of ownership or control. This concept is important in business law, especially when one entity affects the operations or decisions of another. For example, a parent company and its subsidiaries are considered associated entities. The specifics of what constitutes an "associated entity" are detailed in legal documents like the Corporations Act.
