Trying to navigate the requirements on my own was a challenge, so the Osome team were a blessing and gave me total confidence in setting up my small business. Regular updates, a few questions along the way and an easy-to-use app made the whole experience worry-free and not stressful at all.

The process

4 steps to registering your Hong Kong business

Meet the official requirements

If you're organised, opening a company in Hong Kong is straightforward. We help you arrange the following government requirements:

Hire a local corporate secretary

All Hong Kong companies are required to have a local company secretary. They are responsible for liaising with the government if your company structure changes. Learn more about our Corporate Secretary services.

Arrange a registered address

Your registered company address is recorded on Hong Kong's official records. This address is where you'll receive all government correspondence, which is mandatory for every business.

Get your Business Registration Certificate

This document outlines the official details of your company and is typically issued for one year. We'll organise obtaining your Business Registration Certificate and help with the annual renewal.

Meet the official requirements

Get your company registered

Your 100% online company registration with Osome happens in three simple steps.

1. Send us your details and documents via chat. We need your company name, business activities, share structure, director and shareholder details, plus online ID verification for each person.

2. We'll prepare your key documents:

  • Company Constitution
  • Articles of Association
  • Incorporation application

3. We'll send the completed documents for you to sign digitally.



It's that easy!

Get your company registered

Set up your accounting calendar

As a business owner, you must submit two reports and one annual audit. Even if you have no transactions, you still need to submit reports, prepare unaudited accounts, have an external auditor review, and file your Profits Tax Return (PTR).



Osome helps prepare these correctly and on time to avoid fines and penalties. Your dedicated accountant handles your bookkeeping and reports according to the deadlines.

Set up your accounting calendar

Open a business bank account

You will need a bank account to receive money and pay your invoices. Osome connects you with our partners and helps submit your application to a bank suited to your business.



We partner with HSBC and DBS, the largest banks in Hong Kong, and other traditional banks. We also work with neobanks, such as Airwallex and WorldFirst.

FAQ

  • What is an incorporation of a company?

    Hong Kong is one of the top cities to incorporate a business. Incorporating a company in this city is a straightforward process. You would need a company name, a Hong Kong local registered address, and appoint one Designated Representative, one individual Director, one Shareholder, and one Company Secretary.

  • Can I register a company in Hong Kong online?

    Yes, you can! We handle the entire company registration process online with little effort needed from you. We'll help you organise the hiring of a local Corporate Secretary, getting a registered address, opening a business bank account, and much more without you needing to go anywhere.

  • How long does it take to register a company?

    Once all the documents are ready, it usually takes us 2-4 business days to register a company. It mostly depends on when you have all the necessary documents ready as well as the service hours of the authorities.

  • What does the incorporation timeline depend on?

    Usually, it’ll take us 1 business day to register a company, assuming all documents are ready and it’s within the service hours of the authorities. Here’s what we need to proceed:

    • Collect payment for our services
    • Receive all documents and information from you
    • Clear due diligence
    • Have the documents electronically signed on your end
  • What language is allowed when selecting a name for company registration in Hong Kong?

    Your company name must follow these requirements:

    • It can be registered with an English name, Chinese name, or both
    • It cannot be a mix of both English and Chinese letters
    • If your company has an English name, it must end with the word "Limited"
    • If your company name is in Chinese, the last word should bear the meaning of "Limited"
  • What are the minimum statutory requirements for registering a company in Hong Kong?

    Most business owners register their companies in the form of private limited companies in Hong Kong. To do so, you must meet the following requirements:

    • At least one shareholder of over 18 years old is required. The shareholder can be local or a foreigner
    • At least one director of over 18 years old is required. The director can be local or a foreigner
    • One person can act as both the shareholder and the director
    • You must have a registered address in Hong Kong
    • While you do not need a minimum share capital to register a company in Hong Kong, the common practice is to have about HK$10,000 in share capital. Since the minimum paid-up capital per share is HK$1.00, your share capital can be represented by 10,000 ordinary shares of HK$1.00 each
    • Your company needs to have a Designated Representative (DR) in the form of a company or a person to provide assistance to the company's Significant Controllers Register (SCR)
    • A company secretary who is a local. If you would like to use an incorporated entity as your secretary, it will need to have an office in Hong Kong
  • What do I get after registering a company?

    After registering a company in Hong Kong, you'll have a Company Constitution, a dedicated local Corporate Secretary, a registered business address, a business bank account, and a Business Registration Certificate. After that, we'll set up your accounting calendar to ensure you pay the right tax and remain compliant throughout the financial year.

  • What should I do after registering a company in Hong Kong?

    After you have successfully registered your company, you can focus on the next steps. These include:

    • Opening a business bank account. If you register your company with Osome, we help you with this step
    • Obtaining the relevant permits and licenses according to the government website
    • Handling your bookkeeping and accounting
  • Can I register a company if I am not in Hong Kong?

    You can register a company even if you are not in Hong Kong. If you fulfil all the requirements during the online qualification process, your company registration will be complete in 5-7 working days.

  • Do I need to be physically present in Hong Kong during the company registration process?

    You are not required to be physically present in Hong Kong to register your company. If you have an agency to help register your company, all you have to do is send them the required documents.
