Shell Corporation

What Is a Shell Corporation?

A shell corporation is a company with financial assets but no significant business activity. Shell corporations don't create products, hire employees, or generate revenue. Rather, they store money and engage in financial transactions. Shell corporations can be used for illegal purposes like money laundering or legitimate purposes like storing funds in the early stages of a startup.

Shell corporations may also be known as international business corporations, personal investment companies, phantom firms, mailbox companies, or letter-box corporations.

How Does a Shell Corporation Work?

Shell corporations hide the identities of their owners. They can be set up anonymously, letting businesses and individuals engage in financial dealings without revealing who they are.

Shell corporations are often created in tax havens. Tax havens are countries with few or no taxes on business, as well as laws against revealing b

Funding for Startups: 12 Best Options for Raising Money

  • 6 min read

It takes money to turn a great idea into a great product, but “money doesn’t grow on trees” and you may not have thousands of dollars just waiting to be spent.  So how do you turn your dream into a reality?  Here are some of the best options.  

Self-Funding / Bootstrapping

Many entrepreneurs start with some level of self-funding (also known as bootstrapping) and, in fact, future investors likely will want to see that you have some “skin in the game”.  Even if you can only put in a little money, it is worth considering the benefits. For example, you don't have to worry about keeping investors happy. You also can keep more profits to yourself.  Many founders also hold off on taking a salary, consider tapping into the 401(k) retirement account, and/or have a side job to help make ends meet while they get their business up and running.

Reverse Stock Split

  • 5 min read

What is a Reverse Stock Split?

A reverse stock split is when a company reduces the total number of outstanding shares by a multiple and increase the share price by the same multiple. The company will maintain the same market capitalization (share price x outstanding shares) as before. In effect, you start out with 10 shares of stock worth $2.00 per share and assuming there is a one-for-two reverse split, you will wind up with 5 shares worth $4.00 per share. To make this easier to understand, let's assume for a moment you have two $50 bills. Someone offers you a $100 bill in exchange for them. You now have one bill worth $100 instead of two that equal the same value.
