Company A owns company B. Company B is a disregarded entity so its income/loss flows through company A.

Company A has one shareholder, the shareholder would like to keep company A & B separate, whereas they are each stand alone entity's owned by him.

what is the best way to go about doing this and what are the tax consequences.

Hey Paula
I'm not an accountant. It sounds like you should consult yours to get the right advice. I own a few companies so I'm just giving street advice. It sounds like company A needs to sell/transfer ownership of company B to a separate company owned by the one shareholder. Then company B would keep its income/loss separate from company A.

If Company A still needed to be involved financially with company B then you could set up some type of lease that could fit your needs. Still keeping the liability of both company's separated

I don't know your tax consequences other than filing returns for two companies instead of one

Good luck
