Shelf Company

What Is a Shelf Company

A Ready Made shelf company is where the company is already incorporated and can be handed over to new officers and shareholders. These companies have been non trading for a period. There are many reasons why Directors would require a ready made company.

  • There are no delays in receiving a company number. You can acquire a company number usually within 24 hours and in many cases same day.
  • Tax planning benefits may arise if you are trading as a Sole Trader or Partnership with a company that has been previously incorporated.
  • A company incorporated in the past may give more credibility with suppliers, prospects or customers.

Many organizations and individuals require a shelf company as they need to sign a contract with a company. The contract would be governed by a company that was incorporated in the past. The changes for Shareholders, Directors and Secretary can all have an effective date in the past.

Acquiring a ready made company presents a multitude of potential advantages tailored to your precise business goals and circumstances.


Time Efficiency

Shelf companies are pre-established entities reserved for potential buyers. Opting for a shelf company enables you to bypass the laborious process of initiating a new company from the ground up. This is particularly beneficial if swift company establishment is pivotal for capitalizing on a business opportunity or signing a contract.


Perceived Experience and Stability

An established company can convey a sense of endurance and reliability to clients, suppliers, and financial institutions. This could potentially fortify your business’s standing and credibility.


Contractual Bidding

Certain contracts or projects may necessitate a company with a more extensive operating history. Acquiring a shelf company with a substantial track record could fulfill this prerequisite.


Banking and Financial Relationships

Well-established companies might confront fewer hurdles when initiating bank accounts and forming financial connections, crucial for seamless business operations.
