LIMITED STOCK: Stock is limited. All Shelf Companies are sold on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.
If you have not actively been trading with a Registered Company, VAT Registration will NOT be possible for your company to get within less than 2 months. Due to this problem, we have setup Shelf Companies with a PAYE Number and VAT Number which can be activated within 1-2 weeks.
Please note: Shelf Companies are more expensive than a normal Company Registration due to its advantages for tenders and contracts. If you do not need a Shelf option: Register a New Company @ R880. Learn more about Shelf Companies here, or signup below to get your own Shelf Company asap.

Our experts have been assisting South African entrepreneurs since 2006 with all their business-related questions, for example Shelf Companies for sale in South Africa. If you have a few questions regarding Shelf Companies, don’t worry, because our experts have compiled all the questions they frequently get from South African entrepreneurs, and they’ve answered them all below.
It is essentially just a Pty Company, but the only difference is that Shelf Pty Companies are pre-registered companies. 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, it is just a Pty company that has already been registered using a generic Company name, which means that you can start using it ASAP and don’t have to wait for registration. In short, whether you’re buying a Shelf 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.
Shelf Companies are the perfect option for businesses who need a Company Registration number immediately.
The sole purpose is having a registered company available for anyone who needs a company ASAP. Company registration is not an instant process, because documents need to be processed before you’ll be issued a Company Registration number. Buying a Shelf PTY or CC 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.
A Shelf Company IS a Pty Company or a Closed Corporation. There is no legal difference. It has just been registered in the past to resell again.
Essentially Shelf PTY or CC’s carry a great benefit when you want to apply for Tenders. Here’s why buying a Shelf Company in South Africa can be beneficial to you:
As Shelf entities are pre-registered companies, there’s no need to wait for the registration process.
You can INSTANTLY get a Company Registration number to use to apply for Tenders where 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.
Shelf Companies are normal Pty (Ltd) Companies that have already been registered at the CIPC. That means you don’t have to wait for any documentation to be processed. Once you buy a Shelf Company, the PTY is legally registered; it’s yours; and it’s ready for use.
As Shelf entities are already registered, you don’t have to go through all the Company Registration red tape; that’s already completed.
Also, even though it’s already registered, it 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.
Yes, it’s 100% legal to buy an already registered Company in South Africa. A Shelf PTY or CC is a company that has already been legally registered as a Pty Company or Closed Corporation at the CIPC. Buying that Pty/CC means you legally buy that Pty/CC, along with the Registration number. It also offers you the legal right to change your company name after you’ve purchased it.
