Patricia Holdings' name was licensed to an unrelated party for use in Queensland (when registries were State based and before the invention of the Internet!)


Patricia Holdings is founded. The original owner was a businessman who experienced frustration with the amount of time it took him to establish companies. Back in the days before the internet, the process was slow and laborious. He decided to set up a number of companies and put them on his "shelf" so they were ready whenever he needed them. He knew other business people would have the same problem and decided to on-sell these companies to other people. The new owner would be able to use the company immediately - it didn’t matter that the regulator at the time took a couple of weeks to record the transfer of ownership and so the shelf company in Australia was born.
