Features of Aged Corporations in California
- Business History – Establish an instant history for your business
- Business Image – Customer and lender trust may, in our opinion, be enhanced with an older company
- Building Credit – A shelf company may merged with an existing business and may greatly enhance the business credit building process. (Naturally, there are other factors in addition to age.)
- Bank Loans – Banks are more likely to lend money to your company if it has a business history, especially if the age of the company corresponds with the number of years you have actually been in business. Naturally, this is our opinion only and there are no guarantees.
- Contracts – Bids on certain contracts in some cases may possible require a company be of a minimum age (this may be possible in some, but not all, circumstances).
- Creditworthiness – Corporate credit building and business financing programs are available
- Faster Launch – Your business is filed and ready for immediate delivery
- Obtain Clients – Business age increases customer confidence, especially when it corresponds with your the number of years you have actually been in business.
- Trade Lines – It may be easier for an older company to obtain credit with suppliers
