UK Ready Made Shelf Company

Tax Status: Onshore Jurisdiction with fully taxable companies.

Advantages: Purchasing a shelf company or incorporating a new business in the United Kingdom can be beneficial both in terms of business efficiency and reputation. Being one of the easiest places to do business worldwide, UK is an attractive market offering reliable and tested infrastructure.

Disadvantages: There are very strict compliance, accounting and liability requirements for UK companies. We would always recommend that you appoint a local accounting firm to assist with taxation and compliance.

Directors and Shareholders:  UK Companies may have foreign Directors and Shareholders and we have Personal and Corporate Nominee Directors and Shareholders available for our shelf companies on a case by case basis only.

Banking: A wide range of local and international banks are available to provide domestic and international banking services. We can assist with account applications, however the requirements will vary, depending on the particular bank.

Accounting Requirements: UK has a comprehensive tax structure, which will require local expertise to navigate. For general information, visit the UK HM Revenue and Customs website at:

Annual Requirements: A limited company must file annual tax returns (‘corporation’ tax returns) with HM Revenue & Customs. It must also file an annual return to Companies House which is a snapshot of general information about a company.

Recommended Use: We recommend UK as a place to set up a locally trading business, or as a branch office of an existing company, looking for more global exposure. It can be used for tax planning in conjunction with overseas companies as a Nominee, Agency or Holding Company.

Due Diligence: To comply with legal requirements in your jurisdiction of choice, before we can supply any ready-made ‘shelf’ or pre-incorporated Company, IBC or LLC to you, we will require identification of the beneficial owner such as passport copy and proof of address. Specific details will be provided upon application, depending on your full requirements.

DISCLAIMER: Please note that we do not give legal advice. We assist to incorporate and maintain companies, sell pre-existing or ready-made shelf companies and provide nominee directors and shareholders. We accept no responsibility or liability for the actions of those operating the companies that we sell. Liability and responsibility remains with the beneficial owner or end user of the company.
