Shelf Company or Ready-Made Company when you go for an offshore company
What is a Shelf Company or Ready-Made Company? When you consider to incorporate your business in an offshore jurisdiction like Cyprus, you will quickly be asked if you want a new offshore company incorporation or if it should be a Shelf Company (Ready-Made) not all know what exactly this question is about and often we get asked what the different is between an Shelf Company (Ready-Made company) and a new incorporation.

It isn’t any different to buy a Shelf Company, also called, Ready-Made company or to enter into a new registration of your offshore company, at least not in regards on how to incorporate in the jurisdiction of your choice, for instant Cyprus. A Shelf Company will give you the opportunity of several benefits as listed below compared to a new incorporated company.
What’s the benefit of a Shelf Company?
a) You can in some cases become a shelf company much faster than then a new incorporation; the only thing that needs to be changed when you buy a shelf company is the ownership.
b) It can be of benefit for you to go for a Shelf Company which is already registered and duly incorporated for years ago, but which hasn’t conducted any business yet. The reason is that for some business purposes it is needed that you “new venture” don’t look new but rather to have existed for several years. Also if you are that lucky to become a regular incorporated company which is incorporated before 2003 then this company is subject to no TAX at all, those shelf companies are often very expansive and almost impossible to buy.
c) If you already know that you will have the company incorporated as an IBC (International Business Company) then it is often much faster and with less paperwork connected if you buy a Shelf Company (Ready-Made company) which already have registered nominee shareholders and Directors, most often also those nominees are foreigners to give the Shelf Company the privilege of being a IBC which again is subject to 0% Tax.
Above are only 3 reason for why you should go for a Shelf Company (Ready-Made company) the reasons are many more, and we would be happy tell you much more about this if you like. A Shelf Company (Ready-Made Company) is often a bit more expansive to become, however it is worth the additional costs, even if you are not in a hurry to become your offshore company, just thing about the possibilities above.
