Advantages of a ready-made company in Estonia
Company with a history
A company with a history will add credibility to your business. The number of years that the company has been on the market can provide advantages in the business projects you carry out. Some government agencies and financial institutions insist that a firm be registered for a certain period of time before tenders are allowed. If the company’s turnover is an important criterion, then we are happy to offer turnkey solutions.
In addition, it is easier for the owners of a re-registered ready-made/shelf company to attract investments since companies with a history and turnover seem to be a more reliable investment. Also, the ability to build business relationships with banking institutions and suppliers usually comes first when buying a company of this type. The established reputation of an enterprise is certainly important when concluding deals, searching for new partners, and can also influence the decisions of potential investors or partners.
A ready-made/shelf company with a history in the business register will contribute to a more professional image and therefore appear worthy of the trust of service providers. According to research, clients prefer companies that can demonstrate longevity because they appear to be credible and instill confidence that the owners of the company have experience in the relevant field. A ready-made company will give the impression that it has existed for a long time, and, therefore, will give the client confidence that they can use your services.
When buying an existing company, the owner gets an instant business tool. The turnkey company is already registered and is now available for purchase by the new owner. A ready-made/shelf company already has a registration number and, therefore, on its behalf, you can start a business immediately.
Before purchasing a ready-made/shelf company, the potential buyer will be provided with all relevant documents confirming the history of the company and that the current company has no debts or financial obligations.
IMPORTANT! The ready-made/shelf companies listed do not have bank accounts or VAT numbers. All corporate accounts have been closed by their previous owners.
Company in Estonia OÜ asks to consider that the purchase of a ready-made/shelf company does not simplify the paperwork, the process of obtaining a loan or opening an account with an Estonian bank. The time spent on re-registering a ready-made business will not differ from the time of setting up a company from scratch.
