Setting Up a Business Management Company

Setting up a business management company in Hong Kong can be exciting, but it requires careful planning and understanding of the local regulations. Here's a breakdown of the key steps to guide you:

1. Business Structure:

  • Company type: Choose the appropriate company structure, considering factors like liability, control, and tax implications. A private limited company is the most common choice for business management services.

  • Company name: Check for name availability through the Companies Registry and ensure it complies with regulations.

2. Registration:

  • Business registration: Register your company online through the Companies Registry or with the assistance of a professional service provider. You'll need company details, directors' information, and registered office address.

  • Business registration certificate: Obtain your Business Registration Certificate (BRC) after successful registration.

  • Tax registration: Register for relevant taxes with the Inland Revenue Department (IRD).

3. Licenses and Permits:

  • Business licenses: Identify any specific licenses or permits required for your business activities based on the services you offer and clients you target. This might involve licenses for financial services, accounting, or other specialized areas.

  • Work visas: If you plan to employ foreign directors or staff, arrange for appropriate work visas.

4. Business Essentials:

  • Open a business bank account: Choose a reputable bank and open a corporate bank account for business transactions.

  • Appoint a registered agent: Appoint a Hong Kong resident as your company's registered agent to receive official documents and communications.

  • Accounting and legal resources: Secure competent accounting and legal services to ensure compliance with financial and legal regulations.

  • Business insurance: Consider appropriate insurance coverage for potential risks and liabilities.

Additional Resources:


  • Consider language capabilities. English is widely spoken in Hong Kong, but fluency in Cantonese may be beneficial for deeper business connections.

  • Stay updated on regulatory changes and compliance requirements.

  • Network with other businesses and professionals in the industry.

Remember, setting up a business requires dedication and effort.
