Benefits of easy incorporation
Almost all open-oriented jurisdictions facilitate foreigners to set up companies and encourage their investments. One superiority of Hong Kong is that overseas entrepreneurs are permitted to have complete ownership of their enterprises registered in its territory.
There is no limit to holding percentage; therefore, they have the right to own their corporates either primarily or entirely. People can incorporate effortlessly with up to 50 individuals in the structure of a Private Limited company
There is at least one person needed, who can be both director and a shareholder, to set up a corporation in Hong Kong. It does not require directors to be residents. Significantly, Hong Kong offers a moderate amount of share capital which can be 1 HKD minimum.
We at, The Startup Zone partner with Startups, Business Owners and Innovators, help focus on your goals by assisting you right from the Incorporation of the Business, Investment Advisory Services and much more. We are a service provider and facilitator of Legal, Chartered Accountancy and Company Secretary Work.

The company formation procedure is fast and simple
Generally, an enterprise can be incorporated remotely through a professional service firm in Hong Kong. It takes only 1 day, or even an hour, to accomplish an E-registration with Hong Kong Company Registry (CR) for company structure with individuals. Hard copies of the incorporation documents are provided within a week later.
Parent companies may be shareholders of subsidiaries. This progress is longer, about 7 working days, as CR asks for a physical version of NNC1 signed by shareholders.
Did you know?
Hong Kong approved about 170 nationalities to visit Hong Kong without a visa for 7 to 180 days. To attract skillful foreign talents and professionals, Hong Kong offers work visas and student visas for under 2 years.
There are many kinds of visas suitable for particular subjects including investment, dependent, training, etc. to raise abroad attention to the Hong Kong market.
"The biggest problem we faced as a company was guidance. We only had a dream to start a design business and organically grow it. Completely unaware of how the compliance works, we have been looted and misguided and kept in dark several years causing us to pay a huge amount of fine for hardly any mistake of ours. After 3 years of mess, we decided to speak to the startup zone. It's been 4 years since working with the startup zone. What we experienced as a company is equal loyalty, honesty, and completely ethical. We have previously had experience (prior to the startup zone) of misguiding so that the compliance company makes revenue at various Intervals. But the startup zone guided us through every step, helped us solve our issues, put us through the right people and today all of them are part of our growth story. They are prompt, they don't make us loose any money, and now they take care of all our compliances. I would recommend the startup zone to anyone who wants to start a business, so that you can focus on your idea and business."
"Very professional team. Fantastic at the clarity of what needs to be done, when, how, and the status of things. That comfort and peace of mind is valuable for a startup. I have been working with the Bangalore team (Abhishek, Pavithra & Sharath) for the last six months for all my registrations, compliances and licenses etc and it has been without exception a smooth experience. At times, they have gone beyond their call of duty to help and I much appreciate that. Continue the good work, team!"
"Speed and responsibility, are the only things startups look for from vendors. Sharath and team have been phenomenal in delivering every aspect of secretorial and compliance related services at amazing speed. They’re highly reliable and take ownership in delivering, which has helped me focus on everything else - business. If you’re a startup and want to build a startup without having to worry about compliance then these guys are your best bet. They’re very competitively priced and are experts of their field. I highly recommend them if you’re starting up or have started and need a reliable partner to help free your mind up for what really you should be building. Special mention NIKHIL (lawyer) who has been super fast and available at any time and day. Thanks guys"

Yes, the minimum is one shareholder/director. Your company must have a director and a secretary (secretary must be either a Hong Kong resident or local incorporated company). The director also serves as a member of the company.
Yes, but not the type of secretary who does clerical work or answers the phone .
