Buy a Shelf Company from Germany - Fast & legally compliant

You would like to buy a German Shelf Company - quickly, easily and legally compliant? A good decision: The fastest and safest way of the formation of a company is the purchase of a shelf company. Shelf companies are companies that have already been founded and entered in the commercial register but have not been commercially active since their foundation. By purchasing a shelf company, you save the time required for your own foundation and start your business activities immediately with your new company. Fast & legally secure.

As professional provider we have focused on the offer of shelf companies and all related services. With us you will find all legal forms for corporations: GmbH (LTD), UG (ELC), AG (PLC), Societas Europea (SE) and GmbH & Co. KG. We establish our shelf companies at various locations in Germany - should we not be able to fulfil your desired location, we will gladly establish a company at your desired location or relocate the company's headquarters without complications.

You can buy your shelf company from us quickly and easily - thanks to years of well-established and smooth processes, this is possible within 24 hours. Our shelf companies have not yet been commercially active and are guaranteed to be unencumbered. That is why our shelf companies have not yet registered a business and have not employed any staff. When purchasing our shelf companies, the share capital must be 100% paid in and will be available to the new management undiminished in the company's bank account.

Our shelf companies do not have any liabilities - we guarantee you that!

Buying a German shelf company - Our offer

Individual solutions

Our founding locations

We are founding our German Shelf Companies continuously throughout Germany and above all in the major German economic centres of Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Bonn, Siegburg, Mannheim and Stuttgart.

If your desired location is not in stock, you can still act immediately with a German shelf company from our range of products - you can relocate the business premises to any location and open it there immediately after acquiring the shelf company, regardless of the commercial register.

You can also take advantage of our special service: We will be happy to relocate the registered office of a German shelf company from our range of products to a location of your choice prior to sale, or establish a company directly at your desired location.

Buy a German shelf company with bank account

Two models to choose from

Our shelf companies from Germany have a bank account in which the share capital is fully paid up. We work together with various banks to be able to react flexibly to your wishes. You can take over the existing bank account or transfer the capital by order check to one of your existing bank accounts ("check variant").

The check option is always suitable if you do not wish to take over and continue the previous account of the shelf company, but would rather open a new account for the company at your current bank. The account is automatically closed after the order check has been submitted. This means that you have no effort to close the account.

Please let us know which option you prefer before buying the shelf company. We will provide you with the appropriate shelf company.

Check variant

For the formation of our shelf companies, we open accounts with the Hoerner Bank and pay in the legally required capital there. The new management receives an order cheque from us which can be cashed at their house bank. Once the cheque has been cashed, the company's formation account is automatically closed and is no longer available for payment transactions.  

Transferable bank account

Our shelf companies from Germany have a bank account that is capable of being taken over and can also function as a payment transaction account in the future. The bank balance of the shelf company is at your free disposal after the KYC/legitimation process has been carried out by the bank.
