Aged Offshore Shelf Companies

A Quick Start: Incorporate your offshore shelf company to get that new business idea going, now that the funds are available and the right opportunity has presented itself, or to enter a new market, invest in a new line of business or expand business. This sounds a bit ‘urgent’, but offshore shelf companies are often the right solution when dealing with urgent business situations like these efficiently by grabbing an offshore company off the shelf.

Company acquisition in a fraction of the usual incorporation time: Shelf companies offshore are already incorporated, which means that all the necessary incorporation documents have already been prepared and registered at the registry. Although regular offshore companies can be incorporated in under 24 hours depending on the efficiency of the system of incorporation, shelf companies offshore if elected over ordinary offshore companies can be shipped in a matter of a few hours as long as due diligence and other documentation and legal procedures are satisfied.

Credibility: Credibility is especially relevant when undertaking new business ventures and entering into new business deals with new associates. Shelf companies offshore are established for a few to several years before being bought and so, are presented as established companies. Customers and new trading partners generally tend to more willingly do business with an established company. Shelf companies offshore provide their owners with a greater sense of confidence about achieving a certain degree of success in new undertakings. A quick start with your business upon acquiring a shelf company offshore would also facilitate business deals such as signing contracts, finalizing lease agreements and submitting bids on government projects agreements, which can be efficiently achieved thanks to the credibility of your shelf company offshore.

International Trade: Shelf companies offshore are legally able to trade internationally and are widely accepted as commercial entities. Although unable to engage in offshore banking or offshore insurance if not licensed to carry out such activity, as international business companies or limited liability companies, depending on legal setup, shelf companies offshore can be used as marketing companies, consultancy firms, online stores, shipping companies or intellectual property companies.

Tax Free: Shelf companies offshore are exempt from taxes in the jurisdiction in which they were incorporated. Because of this, a shelf company offshore is able to reduce its tax burden and trade in an environment that is tax friendly and helps to maximize profits. Offshore bank accounts can be used by shelf companies offshore as tax free platforms to enhance trade relations and activities internationally.

Access credit: The same issue of credibility often lies at the heart of the problem of accessing and obtaining credit. However, whilst your shelf company offshore can provide you with a credible, legal structure, you should ensure that you meet the financial requirements of the bank concerned in order to obtain credit. But, this should not be the situation if opening an offshore bank account under the name of your shelf company offshore. The credibility of your shelf company offshore is not an issue with an offshore bank; instead you should meet the requirements to qualify for the credit required.
