Quick reference for Hong Kong limited company formation

For a Hong Kong limited company, in case of hung loss incurred, the owner is not required personally to bear the huge loss even go to bankruptcy only if he paid up the issued share capital allotted to him. This is the most advantage of forming a Hong Kong limited company.

A Hong Kong limited company may have only one shareholder and one director. In general, you may issue at least 1 share with nominal value of HK$1.

It must be a natural person as director in a Limited company. If a company has sole director, the director is not allowed to act as company secretary of the company.

Company secretary is a chief officer of the company required by Hong Kong Companies Ordinance. It is required to be acted by a Hong Kong person or a company incorporated in Hong Kong. In case that you have no such person or company to be appointed as company secretary, we may act as company secretary for you.
