Let’s begin with an overview of ‘shelf company services': what they are and how they became important.

In the past there were numerous reasons to look to shelf company service creation. Up to even ten years ago, creating a new company was prohibitively time consuming. The advent of the internet has since speeded up this process considerably. Also, in some jurisdictions, if you needed to bid on a contract, only a company that was in business for a certain amount of time was able to put in this bid. Companies also turned to shelf corporations in order to show company longevity when trying to attract new consumers or investors. Another possibility was to buy a shelf company in order to have immediate access to corporate credit.

Purchasing ‘off the shelf’ companies was an extremely easy process. First, you would purchase the company, then the shares of the shelf company would be transferred to the new buyer. Consequently the directors of the original company would resign and lastly, the shelf company name would (usually) be changed.
