REQUIRED: COMPANY FORMATION
Our incorporation pack includes name check and application, template constitution, initial capital structure and share issuance, filing with official registry, and full digital document suite.
ADD-ON: Fiat Bank Account
A fiat bank account is still a must-have for most businesses. However, obtaining a bank account for your business in Hong Kong in particular is increasingly difficult. Our Bank Account opening service can help with the preparation and submission of the application to speed up the process. Our fee is capped provided we can obtain all necessary KYC documents from you.
ADD-ON: Company Crypto Account
A crypto currency exchange account for your company is indispensable if you want to hold your cryptocurrencies through the right legal entity. Our Crypto Account opening service helps you with the preparation and submission of the application to open a crypto account on behalf of your new entity, which is typically subject to the same type of KYC documentation as the opening of a fiat bank account.
2. Annual Maintenance
Annual maintenance of your company is paid for each year in advance and includes a registered agent and address for your company, and its annual filing. Add-ons include corporate shareholders, nominee services, and accounting services.
REQUIRED REGISTERED AGENT AND LOCAL ADDRESS
Your company will need a local agent and registered address in Hong Kong. For only USD 600 per year, we will assign you a qualified corporate secretary, provide you with a FREE standard registered address, and submit your annual filing.

For enhanced privacy and as a precaution against identity theft, we require our clients to use a snoop-free, end-to-end encrypted Tresorit™ folder to share sensitive documents and information with us.
ADD-ON: Physical Nominee Director
A Hong Kong company needs at least one physical director, who we can provide as part of our Nominee Services. Directorship comes with fiduciary duties hence our first year Director fee includes a USD 3,500 deposit which will be refunded to you upon termination of our directorship. You can also appoint your own Director as long as they have the appropriate qualifications to look after the day-to-day matters of your company. Our Nominees act under a general power of attorney.

Overview Hong Kong Ltd.
Use Hong Kong for your opco and benefit from zero-taxed foreign revenue
Hong Kong is a "mid-shore" jurisdiction which combines the key characteristics of the offshore IBC, such as tax-exempted foreign revenue and zero capital gain taxes, with first-world transparency and banking services, making it a preferred jurisdiction for both operating companies and holdings. Whilst opening a bank account in Hong Kong remains difficult, once fully-setup Hong Kong retains significant advantages over some of its rivals, especially Singapore.
