Why Hong Kong?

Hong Kong is a great place to do business.

Yes, you could set up in BVI, Seychelles, Singapore, but if you want set up in a country that provides: good tax incentives, low set-up costs, access to merchant accounts, great multi-currency banking, an entry to the biggest and most promising continent and a company name that looks legit, then Hong Kong is the only place that offers that.”

The biggest hassle has become opening a bank account, and I will work with you to make sure this happen. I have helped a few people in DC work through this process and have a lot of strategies to make it work.

Here it is in simple bullet point terms:

  • Safe / respectable place – I love using the HK skyline background, don’t you?
  • Low corporate tax rate of 16.5% taxes inside HK, 0% if outside of HK
  • China at its doorstep and can receive Chinese cash!
  • Banking – Great Multi-currency banking (Update 2017: it is challenging without physical presence)
  • Merchant Accounts – Multiple merchant account options
  • Streamlined Upkeep – Yearly upkeep as painless and transparent as possible

* Alternative Option for American Citizens

So we have been listening to your feedback and we have a deal….we will NOT be involved with your USA filing and simply process your application like the rest.

As we are American owned company in Hong Kong, we will request you specifically tell us that you are going to satisfy the requirements back in American on reporting and filing with your own service provider, or do it yourself.

American HKVIP with Disclaimer

We'll process you the same as the others. But will ask you sign a waiver on our behalf that you will be declaring your company to the US and do not give us any liability.

Frequently Asked Questions

(see Why HK section above)

Yes! Not for the company setup, but for the bank account application. Banks are very traditional and a bit strict, and want to meet the director (s) face to face.

There is another option, you can apply as HSBC in Mainland China, but the costs are almost the same as flying out to Hong Kong!

From you making the payment, and then filling out the proper government forms and mailing back to me in Hong Kong – approximately 2 weeks. If you want to go faster we can do a shelf company no problem – same cost. Note: For bank account opening ,you need to do it from Hong Kong, or Mainland China, in person.

isten : you could probably find a cheaper service. We are the “white gloves” option.

Here’s what you should keep in mind : you always get what you pay for. And we are talking about the legal foundation of your business here. Is this something you really want to be skimpy on ?

We’ll give you the peace of mind that everything is taken care of with great attention and that any question or problem that might arise will be handled by an expert immediately.

Also take into consideration we help with banking introductions at multiple banks and will follow along with you. That is a bit more rare.

Hong Kong’s corporate tax rate is currently at 16.5%

A short question, but can be a rather longer answer! The corporate tax rate in Hong Kong is 16.5% as a domestic Hong Kong Limited company. There is offshore status where you pay 0%, but you need to qualify.

The default tax rate in Hong Kong is 16.5% corporate tax (for business profits). If you can prove offshore status, you get a 0% exemption as well!
More and more choices for online businesses! We have a comparison page of merchant accounts to look at
This package does NOT include the “Green box” and chops and seal, as we cater to online based business owners who don’t need this.

During our initial free 20 minute phone call and I will advise you if I believe it is the right time for you or not. If you do believe in long term you will need a Hong Kong company, then in my opinion it is getting harder to open bank accounts overseas, and the sooner you get one the sooner you can be assured you will be able to move forward with your international business.

I’ll only accept you as a client if I believe it is right for you, as well as for the banks.

What if I can’t get a bank account opened? I only accept clients who I believe can get approved for a bank account. I will work with you – if HSBC doesnt work, we just keep going down the list to the more local options. Americans may be extra difficult – but I know it is possible.

If I think you will not get approved for a bank account (we cannot make a clear case why you need a HK company) then I may reject your application and refund your money before we start the process.

Great Question. Due to higher regulations and additional paperwork for Americans, we have made the tough choice to have a separate price for US Citizens. This is in a best effort to keep our service package price reasonable for those who are not US citizens, rather than raising the price for all new clients.

If there is a director who owns more than 10% of the company, then these higher regulations will be in place. Because of the extra costs and procedures we need to comply with, this will be at the US citizen package level.

Sure! We are one of the few agencies who can accept all forms of payment – credit card, Paypal, bank transfer, even bitcoin (upon request).

So long as you make it clear to your customers and the bank what business(es) you are doing, it should be fine. Please speak to us for more clarity.

Please let us know!
