Trustworthiness

A ready-made/shelf company with a history in the business register will contribute to a more professional image and therefore appear worthy of the trust of service providers. A ready-made company will give the impression that it has existed for a long time, and, therefore, will give the client confidence that they can use your services.

When buying an existing company, the owner gets an instant business tool. The turnkey company is already registered and is now available for purchase by the new owner. A ready-made/shelf company already has a registration number and, therefore, on its behalf, you can start a business immediately.

Before purchasing a ready-made/shelf company, the potential buyer will be provided with all relevant documents confirming the history of the company and that the current company has no debts or financial obligations.
