Updated: Nov 23, 2023



Setting up a Construction Company


Here is a guide on how to set up a construction company in Hong Kong:


Step 1: Choose a company structure


There are two main types of company structures in Hong Kong:

  • Sole proprietorship: This is the simplest and cheapest type of company to set up, but you will be personally liable for all of the company's debts.

  • Limited company: This is a more complex type of company to set up, but it will limit your personal liability.

Step 2: Choose a company name


Your company name must be unique and not offensive. You can check the availability of company names on the Companies Registry website.


Step 3: Appoint a company secretary


A company secretary is responsible for ensuring that your company complies with all of the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance. You can appoint yourself as the company secretary, or you can hire a professional company secretary.


Step 4: Register your company


You can register your company online or by post. The Companies Registry will charge a registration fee.


Step 5: Obtain the necessary licenses and permits


You will need to obtain the necessary licenses and permits to operate your construction company in Hong Kong. The specific licenses and permits you will need will depend on the type of construction work you will be carrying out.


Step 6: Open a bank account


You will need to open a bank account in the name of your company. This will allow you to receive payments for your work and to pay your expenses.


Step 7: Get insurance


You will need to get insurance to protect your business from risks such as property damage, personal injury, and loss of income.


Step 8: Hire employees


If you will be hiring employees, you will need to register with the Inland Revenue Department and obtain a payroll number.


Step 9: Comply with tax regulations


You will need to comply with all relevant tax regulations in Hong Kong.


Here are some additional tips for setting up a construction company in Hong Kong:

  • Do your research and make sure you understand the Hong Kong construction market.
