Shell companies

Are usually offshore and offshore-equivalent companies.
The indicators of such companies are the following:

No connection to an actual economic activity, or the operation of the company generates a minor economic value or no economic value at all (for example, a trading intermediary).

Laws of the country where the company is registered Do not have an obligation to prepare and submit the company’s financial statements (including annual financial statements) for its activities to the supervisory authorities of the relevant country.

Note: Both indicators – (a) and (b) must be present to qualify as not meeting Gemba’s standards.

Intermediary companies

May be companies from any jurisdiction since the main indicator is acting on behalf of third persons (for example, accepting funds from the end buyer in order to transfer them further to the manufacturer of goods).
