Purchasing a ready made company offers substantial benefits over registering a new company, with regards to time, complexity and specifically in Norway's case the personal liability of the person forming the company. The incorporation process in Norway takes approximately two weeks, compared with purchasing a ready made company that is authorised to begin trading immediately after purchase.
A major advantage to purchasing a ready made company is the corporate benefits it offers regarding company reputation, credibility and image.
Despite having no business activity we fully maintain accounts and records for these Norwegian companies, giving them a solid, stable and positive financial and business history. This offers the following benefits (not offered to newly registered companies):
Upon acquisition of the company you will receive all financial documents, accounts and reports.
Upon purchase of your company ownership is transferred to you via share transfer, following the standard share transfer procedure. Once transferred new share certificates are issued confirming ownership.
The Norwegian Company Registry must be notified of any share transfers as shares must be registered with he Norwegian Central Securities Depository; hence the new owner of a ready made company must register their ownership upon takeover.
