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.
