China shelf companies are ready-made, never used corporations that have been created to meet a client's immediate needs. A shelf corporation, shelf company, or aged corporation is a company or corporation that has had no activity. It was created and left with no activity - metaphorically put on the "shelf" to "age". The company can then be sold to a person or group of persons who wish to start a company without going through all the procedures of creating a new one.

If you think that starting a business from scratch is too difficult but still want to have your own small business, you have choices. You should consider buying an existing business, or buying a franchise. The steps involved in purchasing a business are similar to those you need to take whenever you make any major purchase. You need to locate some good businesses to buy, and then research your first choice thoroughly before deciding to go ahead with deal.
