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 2 working days for an additional cost.
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 if you use the Standard Incorporation Service or within 2 working days 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.
If you are living overseas and intend to visit Hong Kong to incorporate your company and open a bank account we suggest you start the incorporation at least 2 to 3 weeks before your visit to Hong Kong. This will allow time for the company to be incorporated and time for you to liaise with the bank to arrange your account opening meeting in advance of your arrival in Hong Kong. If you plan to visit Hong Kong within the next 2 weeks we suggest you use the Express Incorporation Service and would be pleased to provide further details if required.
