The shelf company, or ready-made company, is a company incorporated in advance which offers multiple benefits. Generally, this business was purchased by a supplier who became the owner. An investor may then decide to buy him out to become the owner in his turn and do business with this company that is already created.
The shelf company for urgent deadlines
Offshore Incorporation is in general very swift. The period varies depending on the jurisdiction chosen, but it only takes 3 to 10 days at the most. But in some cases, it may be necessary to shorten these deadlines even more. Purchasing a shelf company would allow you to start your business immediately. However, if you choose to set up a business with a holding or several shareholders, it will be necessary to observe the time limits for modification of the organizational structure of the shelf company.
The Aged shelf company
A shelf company allows you to benefit from the credibility of a company with years of existence which is always advantageous. Your relationships with other businesses that recognize the brand image of your company are more affluent. Your negotiations with financial partners are also facilitated. You can perform operations requiring several years of seniority without drawing undue attention from the tax administration.
The use of a shelf company may, in some cases, be a particularly relevant choice. Pay particular attention to the fact that the shelf company must not have had any previous activity. Its purchase price depends strongly on the jurisdiction where it is domiciled as well as how old the company is.
