What do corporate secretarial services include for Hong Kong companies?

  1. Checking the company for compliance with the requirements

    A company secretary ensures that the business and its operation is thoroughly compliant with the laws and regulations set out in the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance. This includes your statutory returns and keeping company records up to date.

  2. Maintenance of statutory books

    Hong Kong-based companies must maintain statutory books. These provide data to company members; the government may request access if specific documents are needed. The documents include written resolutions, meeting minutes and accounting records.

    Some statutory changes - such as if a shareholder reduces the number of shares they own - require the corporate secretary to prepare and file documents. Osome’s outsourced secretarial services arrange for these papers to be signed and filed.
