Business registration.

Making your business idea happen in Hong Kong starts with the successful registration of your company. At Acclime, we specialise in establishing companies not only in Hong Kong but also various offshore jurisdictions. Our qualified professionals work closely with our clients throughout the entire registration process, making it a seamless and worry-free experience. Our help covers everything from advising you on the appropriate business structure through actual registration with local authorities to handling company matters and compliance thereafter.

Setting up a business in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong has been a sought-after destination for doing business for a number of reasons, one of which is a wide variety of business structures to choose from. However, despite a plethora of choices, it is important for businesses to carefully consider their options, as selecting a wrong entity can have negative implications on operations further down the road. When working with us, we will gain a deep understanding of your business and from that be able to recommend the structure that best suits you.

Business structures in Hong Kong.

Starting businesses can choose from the following corporate structures

Besides registering your own business entity in Hong Kong, we also provide ready-made/shelf companies (both in Hong Kong and offshore).

One of the most popular options for new businesses is a private limited company, which can act as a standalone business or a subsidiary of a foreign company. Businesses expanding from abroad can alternatively establish their presence in Hong Kong in the form of a branch or representative company.

Registration duration.

Registering a company in Hong Kong is fairly straightforward. Depending on the structure you choose, the process can be accomplished in a matter of days. When establishing a new private limited company, please allow up to 10 business days, whereas shelf companies are made available within 3 days.

Supporting business services.

Establishing a company is just the start. Once registered, the business has ongoing obligations to stay compliant with local regulations and laws. We provide administrative support that will unburden you from these mundane tasks, allowing you to spend more time focusing on running your business.
