FAQ’s on Shelf Companies in South Africa:

What’s a Shelf Company in South Africa?

A Shelf Company in South Africa is essentially just a Pty Company. The only difference is that a Shelf Company is a preregistered company. The reason it’s already registered at the CIPC is to save you time. The aim of a Shelf Company is getting a legally registered company in South Africa, along with its registration number, as soon as possible.

So, a Shelf Company is just a Pty company that has already been registered – using a generic Company name. That means you can start using it ASAP; you don’t have to wait for registration. In short, whether you’re buying a Shelf Company or a new Pty Company, you’re buying a Pty Company that’s officially been registered at the CIPC and has never been traded with before. A Shelf Company is just preregistered by us to save you time.

Shelf Companies are the perfect option for businesses who need a Company Registration number immediately.


What is a Shelf Company for?

The sole purpose of a Shelf Company is having a registered company available for anyone who needs a company ASAP. Company registration is not an instant process; documents need to be processed before you’ll be issued a Company Registration number. Buying a Shelf Company allows you to get a Company Registration number instantly.

You can, for example, buy a company with the name AB Security Services if your company is a security service company. You can apply to Tenders immediately using that Company Registration number and if you don’t like the name you can simply change the name. The Company Registration number will stay the same.


What are the benefits of a Shelf Company in South Africa?

Essentially a Shelf Company is a pre-registered Company that will benefit you when you want to apply for Tenders. Here’s why buying a Shelf Company in South Africa can be beneficial to you:


As a Shelf Company is a pre-registered company, there’s no need to wait for the registration process.

You can INSTANTLY get a Company Registration number to use to apply for Tenders when you buy a Shelf Company. You can always change the name of the company if you don’t like the generic name, but the Company Registration number will always stay the same.


A Shelf Company is a normal Pty (Ltd) Company that’s already been registered at the CIPC. That means you don’t have to wait for any documentation to be processed. Once you buy the Shelf Company, the PTY is legally registered; it’s yours; and it’s ready for use.


As a Shelf Company is a registered Pty, you don’t have to go through all the Company Registration red tape; that’s already completed.

Also, even though it’s already registered, a Shelf Company is a company that’s never been used by another business before. So even though you’re buying an existing company, it’s a clean slate for you to trade with for the first time.


If you need a Company NOW, a Shelf Company is your only option. Especially if you have an upcoming Tender or contract for which you need to apply for ASAP.


Is a Shelf Company like a Pty?

A Shelf Company IS a Pty Company. There is no legal difference. It has just been registered in the past to resell again.


Is getting a Shelf Company in South Africa legal?

Yes, it’s 100% legal to buy a Shelf Company in South Africa. A Shelf Company is a company that has already been legally registered as a Pty Company at the CIPC. Buying that Pty means you legally buy that Pty, along with the Company’s Registration number. It also offers you the legal right to change your company name after you’ve purchased it.
