We take over all the documents and registers from your current provider, process the necessary paperwork, and make sure the outgoing Secretary signs the papers. If they don’t respond, we will carry out the procedure without them. Either way, for you the transition is seamless.Shoot me an email

Can a foreigner be a director and a shareholder of a Hong Kong business?
Yes, Hong Kong allows foreigners to become directors and shareholders of a company registered here. As a foreigner, you can be the only director or hire as many as you need. There is no requirement to have any local directors.
You can be a shareholder as well. You need to have at least one (and as many as 50). They can be people of any nationalities or companies.
How long does it take to register a company?
Once all the documents are ready, it usually takes us less than an hour to register a company. It mostly depends on when you are comfortable with providing all the details, as well as the service hours of the authorities.
What is a General Employment Visa?
It’s a type of working visa sponsored by a specific company so it can invite foreign professionals. It allows you to work exclusively for that company and come to Hong Kong. Its duration is determined by the length of the contract.
Do I need a company address?
Yes, all companies registered in Hong Kong must have a local address. It goes on all legal documents. If you don’t have an office address, use our service. We handle your incoming letters, scan and store them in your Osome account so you have easy access to all your documents.
What is a Business Registration Certificate?
Business Registration Certificate is a document that every Hong Kong business must have. It specifies all the details of your company. It is issued by the Inland Revenue Department of Hong Kong usually for 1 year and has to be renewed annually.
What does the process look like?
First, we check that the name you’ve chosen for your business is available. Next you send us your passport copy and details on other directors and shareholders (if any). We prepare all the necessary documents, send them to you for electronic signature, and submit them to Companies Registry (a government entity that registers companies). We then register your company with the Inland Revenue Department which issues the Business Registration Certificate. On your end, it’s just a message thread in a secure chat.
What are the requirements to get a General Employment Visa?
First, you need to have an offer of employment to fill a genuine vacancy. Second, you need to qualify for the job, which means your background, experience, and education should fit the requirements. Normally, the officials look for a first degree in the relevant field. Third, the salary you get should be about HK $40,000-$75,000. Finally, you must have a clean criminal record to be cleared by the security.
Do I need a Company Secretary?
Every Hong Kong business must have a local resident company secretary. This officer is responsible for keeping your paperwork in order, making sure all changes on the company are processed correctly, on time and in compliance with the local legislation. This role can be performed by an individual or a corporation, known as a body corporate.
