Shelf and aged Companies are previously formed companies also known by a number of terms, i.e. Shelf or shell (usually refers to publicly traded) or aged or seasoned companies, corporations, limited liability companies or partnerships or combinations of terms.

Irrespective of the term, a shelf company offers unique opportunities. Perhaps the leading reason for acquiring an aged entity in general is credibility. An answer to the most common question, yes you may merge your history with an aged entity.

Business relationships are frequently influenced by the length of time a company has been in existence. This is often true when establishing financial and client/vendor relationships.

Aged Corporations are corporations that are formed, but have never been used. There are examples in business when being able to show that you’ve been incorporated for a period of time is essential; you may need an Aged Corporation if:

– You are trying to establish a history for your business.
– You wish to enhance your corporations’ image with age.
– You want to build corporate credit. It may be easier with age.
– You want to encourage companies to do business with you. Some companies are more willing to do business with an established company vs. a younger company.
– If you wish to bid on a contract that requires your corporation be established for a certain period of time.
– If you wish to obtain a bank loan. It may be easier if you can show you have history of being incorporated.
– If you wish to obtain corporate credit cards and leases. (For example, Gateway computers lease only to corporations 6 months old or more, etc.)

Each shelf corporation was filed by our Firm for the specific purpose of being an aged corporation.

The fact that our Shelf Companies have never had operation and the limited existence of shelf companies should, therefore, not be unexpected. Our shelf companies date from 1994.

The age and not the name of the Shelf Company should be of primary importance as a name change can be readily accomplished.

Our pricing structure is complete, which means that the corporate status with the Registrar of Companies is current to include Director Filings, Resident Agent service, Office Identity and the conversion or opening of a bank account as required. There are additional services which may be required.

Pricing of a Shelf Aged Company

Please note, though, that supply of aged companies is strictly limited and opting for a specific vintage corporation will incur a surcharge. Generally the incorporation price is the same, but you will also need to pay the accrued annual fees from the time of incorporation of that company, up to date.

A complete list of additional service pricing is available upon request.

Please email us with your requirements; remember to be as specific as possible (what age, what jurisdiction etc.) so we can give you a direct answer; if your first choice is not available, we can try to recommend a suitable alternative.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any specific enquiry or question.

Premium Package

Our Premium Package includes all services of a Business Package plus full Nominee Services – Nominee Director and Nominee Shareholder.

Many businessmen and entrepreneurs decide to use nominee services when registering a new business in an offshore jurisdiction. Nominee service is an intermediary ownership and management tool, where people or legal entities are appointed as directors or shareholders.

Benefits of using nominee services:

Using a nominee director or nominee shareholder can bring substantial benefits to you and your business. Using nominee services will result in the name of the nominee person rather that of the beneficial owners, to appear on the corporate documents such as the Articles of Incorporation. This ensures the owner’s identity is kept private, maintaining anonymity and a high level of security.

The nominee director, however, doesn’t hold any practical power over the business and is only for company incorporation. Furthermore, the use of nominees will provide benefits of the tax system of the chosen offshore jurisdiction. For example, in order to gain the benefits of the Cyprus tax system the company must be a tax resident requiring the company to be controlled and managed from the country.

However, it must also be noted that, if lawfully requested by the Court or by the Financial Investigations Agency, the nominee directors are obliged to reveal the identity of the nominee.

If you would like to take the full advantage of the nominee services we will be able to assist you with providing professional and confidential advice and offer you our services.

Global Package
