Shelf Companies (Pre-Incorporated)

Adopt a company that has been in existence for a period of time. Assume a pre-determine share structure. Save the time involved in creating a new company. Illustrate longevity.

Carswell Legal Solutions registers a number of shelf companies on a yearly basis. These companies have no activity and have never been used. They sit on a “shelf” waiting to be purchased. Each shelf company comes with its articles and Certificate of Incorporation and a set share structure.

You may decide to adopt a shelf company in order to increase your chances to bid on contracts as some bids require a company to be in business for a period of time. You may want to show longevity to attract customers or investors. There may be a perception that a company improves with age or it may simplify the credit process.
