Ready-made companies

Shelf companies: Ready-made companies available within 48 hours.

Have your business plans dragged on and you now find yourself needing a company within 48 hours? We have companies already open, ready and available!


Ready-made or Shelf companies, as they’re known, are companies set up in advance by an agent so as to always have on hand already-established companies. This reduces the time needed for registration, mailing of documents, collecting original documents and other delays.


Ready-made companies is the term used to describe those companies which have only recently been opened. Shelf companies are older companies that have been registered for a year or longer.


In both cases:

  • We can offer you companies which have been in existence for 1 month to 10 years.
  • We can offer you companies that are already in existence and which have open bank accounts.
  • We can offer you existing companies which are registered in most European countries and which hold an intra-community VAT number.

The advantages of a Shelf company

There are several advantages to using either a recently-established company or an older one.

  • Is your business urgent and you need to sign a contract within 48 hours?
  • Do your suppliers refuse to do business with newly-opened companies?
  • Are your clients more likely to trust a company that has been established for some time?
  • In the case of European companies, you will need a company that is available and which also has a VAT number.

Choosing an existing Ready Made company allows you to start your business right away by reducing the time required for registration, collecting the required documents, notarizing paperwork, etc.
