Shelf Company Malta

A Shelf Company in Malta, also called an aged Maltese Company, is a company that has had no activity. A Shelf Company can also be s an old company in Malta whose current shareholders have stopped trading using that company and thus would like to offload it as a shelf company. In essence,it was created and put on the “shelf” to age. Furthermore,this Company is then later sold to someone who would prefer to have an aged Company in Malta rather than a new one.

Reasons why someone would look to buy a shelf company in Malta:

  1. To quickly set up a company in Malta, thus someone would look to buy a shelf company in Malta to save time.
  2. To gain the opportunity to bid on contracts. Some jurisdictions require that a company be in business for a certain length of time to have this ability.
  3. To create an appearance that the Malta Company has been around for a long time, thus boosting investor or consumer confidence

Malta’s corporate practise does not allow for shelf companies in Malta. However, rather than provide shelf companies, we have a list of clients who would be ready to pass on their Malta companies. Therefore we have the right contacts in place in order to be able to provide old companies in Malta.
