How do I incorporate my business in Hong Kong?
In Hong Kong, you first have to decide on the type of your business entity and a company name. The minimum requirement for Hong Kong companies have to have at least one shareholder, $1 HKD minimum of share capital, a company secretary and a local office address. After completing the name search, confirming the rest of the information, there is a list of incorporation forms and copies to submit along with your application through e-registry to the Hong Kong Companies Registry and Business Registration Office. The entire registration process, depending on the applicant’s experience and credentials, could take up to 7 to 14 working days to receive your certificate of incorporation.
Why choose Hong Kong as a place of business?
Many investors are attracted to Hong Kong and the reason is clear. The tax-friendly environment is a big attraction for foreign businesses keen to start a business in Hong Kong. A productive legal system, and pro-business setup are some other factors that offer plenty of lucrative opportunities for businesses, besides an attractive tax regime and productive workforce.

The fee covers all company registration requirements, such as the incorporation forms, reserving the company name, appointing director and distributing shares/capitals.

How long does it take to register companies?
The entire application, picking a company name, document preparation, appointing directors, having a local office address and business registration process can be completed within a week. The person is not required to be in Hong Kong during the Hong Kong company incorporation process, as all of our work can be done online on the website or via email. After the initial application has been submitted using the e-registry widget, the Companies Registry CR will be within one to two working days to process. After the business registration process has been completed, you will receive a certificate of incorporation by the Companies Registry.
Can foreigners start a business in Hong Kong?
Yes! Any one who has completed the Know Your Customer records checking process will have the rights to register Hong Kong companies and enjoy the financial benefits as a local company. However, the Companies Ordinance and Companies Registry CR require your firm to have a registered office address, verified company name and a company secretary based in Hong Kong.

Can foreigners open a bank account?
It is very important for each new company in Hong Kong to have a business account. There are 2 approaches to opening an account in Hong Kong and many choices – either with traditional banks such as HSBC and OCBC, or online financial services such as Payoneer and Worldfirst. Both approaches varies slightly as traditional banks value in-person meetings and more completed documents in the business registration process. Whereas for online financial services, you can fill in the information on their website and go through the process online. Both options have their own pros and cons. Read here for more details. Sleek have many banking partners that can help with your business needs. Contact a team member today for referrals and email recommendations.
What is a Business Registration Certificate?

This number is issued by the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) and the Companies Ordinance. In order to keep operating as a business and protect the associated assets/shares, the certificate needs to be renewed annually. Read a relevant article here.
