Process for setting up a company in Hong Kong

Step 1: Handling the Official Requirements

Opening a company in Hong Kong is relatively straightforward, with just a few government requirements to meet. Emerhub is here to help you organize all of these requirements and make the process as smooth as possible.

  • Getting a registered address in Hong Kong
    It is required for every company to have an address in the country to deal with government correspondence.
  • Choosing a local secretary living in Hong Kong
    Emerhub helps you find a corporate secretary who lives in Hong Kong as required by law. This person is responsible for telling the government about any changes in the company and keeping accurate records.
  • Obtain Business Registration Certificate (BRC)
    A BRC includes important information such as your company name, address, and business type. It is usually valid for a year and needs to be renewed annually. Don’t worry, we will take care of everything for you and make sure your certificate is timely renewed each year.

Step 2: Submission of Documents

Emerhub has made the company registration process completely digital for our client’s convenience. Simply provide us with your company name, intended business activities, share structure, paid-up capital (just HK$1 is enough!), shareholder’s names, and complete ID verification. We prepare the rest of the documents for business registration ensuring that everything is done correctly and efficiently.

Step 3: Opening a bank account for your business

The next step is to open a bank account. We have partnerships with HSBC, the largest bank in Hong Kong, as well as other traditional banks and neo banks such as Airwallex. 

Step 4: Ensuring your company’s annual compliance
