    What is a Shelf Company or Ready-Made Company? When you consider to incorporate your business in an offshore jurisdiction like Cyprus, you will quickly be asked if you want a new offshore company incorporation or if it should be a Shelf Company (Ready-Made) not all know what exactly this question is about and often we get asked what the different is between an Shelf Company (Ready-Made company) and a new incorporation.

    I think a shelf company and a ready made company in Cyprus has the same meaning. But setting up an offshore company in Cyprus is different. The ready made companies takes no time to start a business and a offshore company takes at least two weeks in Cyprus to come into operation.

    It is most often the fastest way to get started with an offshore company since one don't need to wait until the company registration has take place. Most often agents have ready-made / dormant companies available for imediantly ordering.

    If I trus the agent I would not mind to buy a dormant company from them unless it costs 2 or 3 times the money of course!
