Company formation in Hong Kong is simple with these steps. You first have to decide on your type of business entity (i.e. company type) and company name. A quick search through the Companies Registry will show if your intended name is in use or not. The minimum requirement for Hong Kong companies are at least one shareholder, minimum $1 HKD of share capital, a company secretary that resides in Hong Kong and a local office address. After completing the name search and 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 via an e-form, depending on the applicant’s experience and credentials, could take up to 7 to 14 working days to receive your certificate of incorporation.
