Aged Shelf Corporations

Aged shelf corporations are companies that have been registered and then set aside to age. Typically, shelf corporations have never conducted business activities, have no debts or liabilities, and have no bank accounts. After these corporations are allowed to age, they are sold to individuals interested in owning an established company with a clean history.
