A shelf company is an abbreviation for an 'off the shelf' company.

The company has been duly incorporated, but has never traded.

Shelf companies are sold by formation agents to individuals or companies who wish to acquire a company, either to incorporate an existing business or through which to trade as a new business.

The company name, ownership and directorships are changed as required.
