The following is a step by step guide of the process to incorporate a Hong Kong company.
Please take a few minutes to complete our online incorporation form by providing your intended company name, choose your incorporation package, provide brief details of your intended business activity and provide the name and address of the shareholder and director.
We will review your incorporation form, clarify any issues with you and provide a written fee quote together with our bank account details for your payment to incorporate your company.
We will prepare the incorporation documents “Form NNC1 – Incorporation Form” and “Articles of Association” for your signature upon receipt of your payment. The incorporation documents can be signed at our office if you are in Hong Kong. If you are overseas we will email the incorporation documents to you for your signature and you will need to courier the original signed documents to us for submission to the Companies Registry.
We will submit the original signed “Form NNC1 - Incorporation Form” and “Articles of Association” to the Companies Registry. Your company will be incorporated within 5 to 7 working days after submission of the documents to the Companies Registry. The Companies Registry also offer an Express Incorporation Service whereby your company can be incorporated within 1 working day for an additional cost.
If you are living overseas we suggest to incorporate your company and arrange your bank account opening meeting before visiting Hong Kong as it usually takes around 2 to 3 weeks to complete the company incorporation and for the bank to confirm your account opening meeting. If you proceed on this basis you will have a confirmed bank meeting before travelling to Hong Kong meaning you will only need to spend 1 or 2 days in Hong Kong to meet with ourselves and the bank. It is also possible to start the incorporation when you arrive in Hong Kong however in this scenario you will need to stay in Hong Kong for 2 to 3 weeks until the company has been incorporated and you have met with the bank.
If you are living in Hong Kong and visit our office to sign the company incorporation documents your company will be incorporated and ready to use within 5 to 7 working days or within 1 working day if you use the Express Incorporation Service. Once your company has been incorporated you can then start to liaise with the bank to open a bank account.
