Shelf_companies_in_Belgium.jpgBasic facts about Belgian shelf companies

A shelf company in Belgium is a company that has been incorporated but has not had any business activity. These types of companies are convenient for entrepreneurs who want to open a business in Belgium but do not want to go through the lengthier procedures required for company registration. By purchasing an already made company they can begin their business activity faster.
Our law firm in Belgium can make all the necessary arrangements so that you can buy a Belgian shelf company. Our lawyers in Belgium recommend you to be cautious when doing such a business transaction, to avoid any costly schemes. Legal assistance can be of great importance when buying an aged company and our Belgian lawyers have the necessary experience to help you make the right choice.


The advantages of a shelf company

Perhaps the greatest advantage of a shelf company, and the reason why many foreign investors choose to buy such a company, is the fact that the company can begin performing business activities right away. The shelf company will have all its documents in order, all its payments up to date and the investors will see no setback when engaging in business activities.
Another advantage, one that seems to be of great importance to some entrepreneurs, is that these Belgian companies have more credibility for credit companies, especially when wanting to obtain corporate credit. The shelf company has no bad payments history, no creditors that claim liabilities and is in no danger of liquidation or dissolution.
One last advantage is the fact that some business partners may prefer to engage in business activities with a company that has longevity. Customers or other will also be more likely to trust a company that has been established for a longer time.

Buy a shelf company in Belgium

If you decide to buy a shelf company in Belgium, rather than incorporate a new one like a branch or a subsidiary, our Belgian law firm will see that all the steps for purchasing the company are completed and that everything is in order.
Our Belgian lawyers can help you sign any necessary contracts and draw-up any other necessary documents for the company. We will make sure that the purchase is legitimate and risk free.
