What is a shelf company in Ukraine?
Shelf companies in Ukraine mostly are just legal entities that have been established only with the aim to be sold. Such companies usually have no turnover, no banking account, there are no employees, and other signs of active business. But in case if you need an aged Ukrainian company to be able to start your business immediately shelf company might be a good solution.
The main benefits of Ukrainian shelf company are the following:
- age; it is reasonable that old companies are trusted more;
- time to start a business; in most of the cases it is better to take a shelf company if you need urgently to start transactions or to invoice your client;
- licenses and permissions; there are ready-made companies that have specific authorizations and permissions for sale.
We want to inform you that it is possible to make amendments to any data of Ukrainian company including company name, shareholders or owners, types of business activities, company address and other contact information, etc. The only data that is impossible to change is the date of the company’s registration and registry number. In Ukraine, it is also possible to make a company reorganization and to convert a limited liability company into a joint-stock company.
Shelf companies are popular in Ukraine. Also, it is due to the specific process of VAT registration. Another reason is that some customers do not want to lose time and wait for the registration procedures and decide to buy a ready-made corporation.
But consider that companies that do have special licenses and permissions for gas, oil exploration, or extraction of other resources are not called shelf companies even if such entities do have all the features of an empty corporation. That is because in some industries certain permission can be unique and can be considered as an asset itself.
If you need to register a new shelf company, the procedure is the same as normal company formation in Ukraine.
Special ready-made companies in Ukraine
Some companies, that are being sold, had some business activity previously. But now such companies are free from assets and debts. Such companies are sold because there is a demand for corporations that had a certain amount of revenue and proper accounting.
The other reason why such entities are sold is that the previous owner prefers to avoid the liquidation procedure, which is usually complicated in Ukraine. But the good question is why do you have to sell a “clean” company with a certain level of turnover and that can be used for other business. The new owner or a shareholder of such a company can show to his clients the balance sheet or financial statement and to have proof that his/her business has been running for some years. Consider that it is a bit riskier to buy such types of shelf companies. But if you really need it, do your best to acquire a company through a trusted lawyer or solicitor. The best solution is to conduct due diligence before you will buy a ready-made company with turnover.
How to buy a shelf company in Ukraine?
First of all, you have to understand clearly what for do you need such shelf company, and what are your main goals and requirements? If it is a limited liability company, first of all, you have to buy shares. A young shelf company for sale shall have no debts and no bank account opened. It would be better to receive a guarantee letter both from the shareholder (or in this case, he is called as seller) and manager (director) of the company.
The next step is the removal of the company’s manager and amendments to the company data, like company name, types of business activities, official legal address, and contact information. Of course, this is not a must. And there is no need to make changes in the case if the company name or types of activities or other legal company details are ok four you. But if you are buying a company that had a revenue, due diligence is strongly recommended.
