Establishing an Office in Hong Kong

A Hot Tip about Setting up a Business in Hong Kong SAR

Posted on: 24 Mar 2010

Foreign companies are allowed to incorporate their operations, register branches, or set up representative offices freely in Hong Kong with no restriction on ownership.


Company directors need not be citizens of, nor reside in, Hong Kong. Reporting requirements are straightforward and not onerous. There is no distinction in law or practice between investment by foreign-controlled companies and those controlled by local interests. There are no disincentives to foreign investment such as limitations on the use or transfer of foreign currency, or any system of quotas, performance requirements, bonds, deposits, or other restrictive regulations.


To incorporate or register in Hong Kong, a foreign company should first file statutory declarations and submit the necessary documents to the Administration Section of the Companies Registry. Specific information on establishing an office in Hong Kong is available at:
