Why Hong Kong?

Hong Kong’s advantages are the reasons for its success over many years as an international business city, such as:

  • Political Stability
  • Pro-business Governance
  • Select a type of business
  • Hong Kong Company Registration
  • Simple Tax System

Hong Kong has the world’s freest economy and enjoys unrestricted flow of information, capital, talent and goods.

In addition, Hong Kong people have an international outlook and commensurate business expertise. They are usually trilingual (English, Mandarin & Cantonese), highly trained, flexible and mobile. Hong Kong also has an open-door immigration policy to attract the best overseas professionals to come & work in the city.

Hong Kong Company Registration

Setting up a company in Hong Kong is fast, straightforward and inexpensive. In under a week, your company could be up and running. Here are the basic steps in setting up a business in Hong Kong:

1
Select a type of business
Private Limited Company
Commonly Used
Separate Legal
Profit Generating
Representative Office
Legal Status
Business Activities
Promotion
Liaison work

The most commonly used structure is Private Limited Company. It is a separate legal entity from its foreign parent company, therefore the liabilities of the subsidiary company do not extend to the parent company.

Another type of business is Representative Office. A Representative Office has no legal status and cannot conduct any profit generating business activities. Such an office is useful if a company wishes to explore the Hong Kong market before making a larger investment or indeed if it is never intended to derive sales, e.g. only fulfil functions such as promotion and liaison work.
