About Offshore Hong Kong:
Hong Kong is located on the southeast coast of the People’s Republic of China and adjacent islands. On July 1, 1997 it became a special administrative region of the PRC. The Chinese government is responsible for its defense, foreign relations and also has the ability to influence its economic relations with other countries. Questions of the financial system and fiscal policy remain the responsibility of the local government. The currency is the Hong Kong dollar. Hong Kong’s legal system is based on English law and does not recognize the concept of international business companies or resident / non-resident companies.
The most often established type of company is a limited liability company (Private Limited Company – Ltd.). The minimum amount of share capital of the company is not set, but the approved share capital is subject to a fee of 0.1% to the registry administrator, with the usual amount of paid-up capital being 1 000 HKD. The share capital can be in any currency and any subsequent change of the currency requires the consent of the Supreme Court. Books can also be kept in a currency other than that in which share capital is expressed.
A company may issue ordinary preference shares, but must not issue bearer shares. A company in Hong Kong must not conduct business as a bank, insurance company, fund or trust without an appropriate license. It must not sell its shares to the public or receive deposits from the public. Accounts must be verified annually by the appointed auditor, who must be a member of the Hong Kong accounting association (Hong Kong Society of Accountants) and
then sent to the tax office (Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department) and the business registry together with the annual report.
