Investing in Hong Kong
Doing Business and Investing in Hong Kong
Hong Kong offers a dynamic, investor-friendly and resilient economy for those wanting to invest in Hong Kong. Hong Kong has both an international, informed, educated and affluent domestic market, and immediate proximity to China, the world’s second largest economy, and one of the fastest growing. Hong Kong therefore offers both a significant marketplace in itself and a springboard to the Mainland. Indeed, many companies use an initial investment into Hong Kong as part of their marketing strategy for the Mainland China market.
Relationship between Hong Kong & China
The long trading history between Hong Kong and Mainland China means both that Hong Kong companies are familiar entities to the Mainland authorities, facilitating set-up in China, and that Hong Kong through its Double Tax Arrangement and its CEPA agreement (Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement) with the Mainland enjoys preferential tax and trading terms with China. So, to invest in Hong Kong is one of the best ways to invest in China.
Advantage of Hong Kong
Hong Kong is an open economy based on the common law system. It is a free port, with import duties on only a very restricted range of products (primarily fuel and cars). It was also one of the earliest jurisdictions to focus on attracting start-ups, from 2013, including fintech, and offers a range of incentives for entrepreneurs. There is a vibrant co-working infrastructure, and numerous firms, such as Primasia Corporate Services Ltd., offering advice and tailored support to start-ups who want to invest in Hong Kong.
Primasia Corporate Services Limited offers full-service support in Accounting, Payroll, Tax, Visas and Company Secretarial.
