Services

 

Private companies limited by shares or a Hong Kong Private Limited Company is the most common type of company incorporated in Hong Kong. The company name you wish to register needs to necessarily end with the word ‘Limited.’

 

It requires the company to have at least one natural person as a Director and limits the number of shareholders of the company to 50. However, there is no limit to the number of Directors a company can have. Moreover, a Director can be an entity - an individual or a corporation.

 

It also requires the company to have a Company Secretary. A secretary is a senior administrative officer who ensures that the company is continuously complying with all financial and legal requirements. A company Secretary also makes sure that all business changes and decisions are implemented well in a timely and orderly fashion. This is essential since one needs to make sure that their company always has a good standing in Hong Kong.

A Company Secretary has several other responsibilities to fulfill. They need to take care of maintaining the company records. The Secretary needs to prepare and file returns to the Hong Kong Companies Registry. They are also responsible for issuing reminders of accounting deadlines and documenting routine changes.

 

Any Hong Kong company or Hong Kong-registered foreign company is mandatorily required to have their registered office in Hong Kong. A branch office of the company is considered under the same legal terms as the parent company. Thus, it is subject to the same legal and tax consequences as is the parent registered office.
