Turner Little offer a range of UK shelf companies available for immediate transfer.
A ready-made company, also sometimes referred to as a shelf company or an aged company is a company that has been formed but has not yet traded. It has usually been created for the specific purpose of being ready to be made active at any time and has been placed “on the shelf” in anticipation of being needed at some stage - metaphorically put on the "shelf" to "age".
Ready-made companies stem from a bygone age, from a time when the incorporation of a UK Company involved a “paper chase” with forms having to be completed and signed by the persons wishing to form a company, to Memorandum and Articles of Association being prepared with all the documents being sent through the post to Companies House or one of its sub-offices around the country, then to wait for a week or thereabouts, for the Certificate of Incorporation to be received. Nowadays we can do the whole process in less than three hours electronically.
There are many reasons for buying a shelf company including:
Historically ‘Shelf Companies’ were created so that if speed was of the essence in a new business trading or performing an urgent transaction, a company could literally be taken “off the shelf” for the purpose. Typically used by solicitors and accountants, It saved the time involved in taking the steps to incorporate a new company. It remains to this day, despite the ability to electronically incorporate on a same-day basis, the quickest and most certain way of getting things moving instantly.
To achieve, in some jurisdictions, the opportunity to bid on contracts. Some jurisdictions require that a company has existed for a certain length of time to have this ability.
To create an appearance of corporate longevity. This may boost investment or consumer confidence but it must not be used to deceive consumers.
To gain access to investment capital. Again, it must not be used to deceive prospective investors.
