However, it is important to note that for companies belonging to a group, the turnover is ascertained at the group level (basically, consolidated accounts). 

The definition of group for this purpose is very broad and includes the so-called vertical groups (i.e. the parent company and its subsidiaries) and horizontal groups (i.e sister companies). Thus companies owned by the same person or family would qualify as a group. For instance, if a family holds a majority of voting rights in two entities, these two companies would be deemed to be a group.

Sure enough, when there is a group, intercompany sales must be disregarded, even if the group does not file consolidated accounts. The fact that the companies form a tax group or not, is irrelevant here. 

The 23 % tax rate is not applicable to companies not engaged in an active business activity, for instance, most holding companies.

Finally, the 15 % special tax rate for start-ups overrides this reduced tax rate. Thus, for newly formed companies the tax rate for the first two profitable years would be 15 %, and then on 23 % (if they qualify for it)
