Advantage of carrying on business in Hong Kong (2)

Setting up a company in Hong Kong is easy and with limited restrictions

Setting up a company in Hong Kong is easy and there are no restrictions on the nationality of the shareholders and directors as well as the requirement for a minimum amount of share capital (i.e. paid up capital). In other words, non-Hong Kong residents are also allowed to setup a company in Hong Kong and take the complete ownership of their Hong Kong companies.

For the private company in Hong Kong, it must have a company secretary and at least one director who is a natural person (i.e. an individual and at least 18 years old). The sole director of a private company must not also be the company secretary. A private company having only one director must not have a body corporate as its company secretary if the sole director of that body corporate is also the sole director of the private company.

If the company secretary is a natural person, he or she must ordinarily reside in Hong Kong. If the company secretary is a body corporate, the address of its registered or principal office should be in Hong Kong. AOGB is licensed to provide the company secretary services for Hong Kong companies.
