What is a shelf company?

A shelf company or a ready-made company is a business entity that is fully formed and registered with appropriate authorities, created for the purpose of selling it to clients.

Why should I choose a shelf company over a brand new company?

Acquiring a shelf company means you get hold of an entity already ready to commence operations, whereas forming a company from scratch entails going through a complex and much longer process of company registration. In other words, buying a shelf company means saving a lot of time and effort.

Can I change the company name?

The companies we offer are fully customizable, which means that after the purchase you may change their names, addresses, shareholders, share capital amount, etc. We will help you provide the amendments to Polish Register of Entrepreneurs and other authorities.

What can I use a shelf company for?

A ready-made Polish company is a perfect solution if you want to enter the market fast and start trading as soon as possible. You can also use your company to acquire real estate, carry out mergers and acquisitions, submit tenders, offshore, and more.

Do your companies have any trading history?

No, our shelf companies have no history of operations.

How long does it take to purchase a shelf company?

It takes several hours if you come to Poland, and around two weeks if you wish to do it remotely.

What do I need to do to purchase a ready-made company?

You will only need your passport. We also need information on your shareholders and company director.

Are your companies VAT-registered?

Yes, all our companies are VAT-registered. They have all the certificates and registration documents required by Polish law. This means they are at liberty to commence business activities.

Are there any restrictions I should be aware of?

None of the business structures allowed to operate in Poland have restrictions on foreign shareholders.

Do I need to come to Poland?

Not at all. Our acquisition process can be completed entirely remotely. However the the procedure is longer.

What about brand new companies?

We have great experience in company formation. If an off the shelf company is not enough for you, we will be happy to provide a tailor-made business entity we create from scratch in close cooperation with you.
