Definition of 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.

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.


Advantages of a Shelf Company

  • Within 24 hours after buying a Shelf Company you can start trading with it.
  • We have 2015 and 2016 years 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.
  • The Shelf Company includes a Share Certificate
  • You can have a Business Bank Account in your name within 48 hours (FNB or Standard Bank)!
  • We include a Tax Number from SARS at no additional cost.

Please note: A Shelf Company is more expensive than a normal Company Registration through us. You can get away with our New Company with ‘New Name’ or New Pty Company with ‘Shelf Name’ for much cheaper if you’re willing to wait a bit longer.
