Definition of a Shelf Company


A Shelf Company is a Pty (Ltd) Company that has already been registered with the CIPC.

This Company has the following characteristics:

  • It has never traded before.
  • It has no assets or liabilities.
  • It has been registered by us with the sole purpose to be sold to our Clients.

Depending on your current situation, a Shelf Company may be your only option. Normally, our Clients would buy a Shelf Company from us if they have an upcoming tender or contract for which they must apply within a few days.


  • You must be older than 18.
  • ID Document/Passport.
  • South African Business Address.

Advantages of a Shelf Company

  • Within 24 hours after buying a Shelf Company you can start trading with it.
  • We have 2015 and 2016 Shelf Companies available for your Business to take advantage of immediately.
  • Some of our Shelf Company options include a trading name which you can choose yourself.
