HOW DO I USE A SHELF COMPANY TO MEET MY BUSINESS GOALS?
Acquire a shelf company that's at least four years old. Some finance companies, suppliers and banks prefer to do business with companies that meet certain age requirements. Simply, most people prefer to do business with a company that is a few years old rather than a few days old. Banks prefer to loan money to companies that are four years old rather than four days old. Although banks and suppliers have different requirements, in terms of company age, the best choice is to acquire a company that's four years or older. All of our companies are seven years old. Be confident that you met the bar.
Apply for the EIN yourself. It takes 15 minutes online. Here.
Open a bank account.
File the shelf company in the state where you seek to do business.
File your county and local business licenses.
WHERE NOT TO OBTAIN A SHELF CORPORATION OR SHELF LLC
Don't use Nevada aged shelf companies to build business credit.
The annual state filing fees are $325.
Nevada corporations have an audit rate four times the national average.
Nevada is famous for a transient population, scams, prostitution and gambling.
Don't use Delaware aged shelf companies to build business credit.
The annual state filing fee is $149
Delaware is best if you're going public with an initial offering of stock. If you're corporation is publicly traded on an exchange, Delaware is the place to be. Small business is best served by Wyoming and Montana. Out of those two options, Montana is the best state from where to buy an aged shelf company.
Don't use Wyoming aged shelf companies to build business credit.
The annual fee is $50
Wyoming is best for asset protection. Banks don't want you protected. If you were loaning money, do you want the borrower to be protected from you? No.
When a company is sold from one person to another, the lenders consider an aged shelf corporation a new company after it was sold. They derive that information from the public record, and mainly from the business license information.
The solution is to acquire a shelf corporation from a state that doesn't require a business license, or disclosure of the owners of the company.
What if you intend to do business in a state that requires a business license(i.e. CA, NY, NJ, FL?).
Easy...obtain a shelf corporation from a state that doesn't require a business license, and then file that company into your state as a foreign corporation.
WHAT'S THE BEST SOLUTION?
The solution: Obtain an aged shelf corporation from Montana and then file the company in your home state to do business.
If you're intending to apply for corporate credit, then you must file the company in your state.
HOW CAN I MAKE SURE I AM NOT GETTING RIPPED OFF?
Demand that the seller of the shelf company sign a document that, the company you're buying, doesn't have back taxes or any outstanding debt.
Buy a shelf company without an EIN.
Acquire a shelf company without a business credit history.
Don't buy a shelf company where the name of the company was changed.
Don't buy a company that was ever dissolved and then brought back into good standing.
