  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
