What is a shelf Company?

A shelf company or "close corporation" is a business entity that was pre-registered. These companies/close corporations have no assets or liabilities and have never conducted business. These companies/close corporations were registered with the sole purpose of being sold. We supply all shelf companies/close corporations with a guarantee of having no assets or liabilities and never having conducted business. A "shelf company" is the fastest way of getting a business up and running. We can appoint the new directors within a day, enabling you to open a bank account and to start trading almost immediately.
