02 Why set up a company in Hong Kong?

Hong Kong is one of Asia’s leading financial hubs. Despite being only a small city with just over 7 million inhabitants, Hong Kong is ranked fourth in the Global Financial Centres Index with a market capitalisation of HKD $46.8 trillion. Together with this, there are several practical reasons why many entrepreneurs and prospective business owners decide to set up a company in Hong Kong.

Attractive Corporate Tax Structure

Hong Kong has an extremely favourable tax structure for those looking to set up a company in Hong Kong. Sitting at 8.25% for profits under HKD $2 million and 16.5% for anything over, the corporate tax rate in Hong Kong is incredibly simple for new businesses to navigate.

100% foreign ownership of companies set up in Hong Kong

Additionally, Hong Kong has no restrictions on foreign ownership unlike many other major financial cities. This makes setting up a company in Hong Kong a particularly attractive venture for overseas business owners as they can have 100% ownership as well as be the individual director and shareholder. Furthermore, Hong Kong is a largely bilingual city with many business arrangements taking place in English.

A gateway into China

Close geographical proximity and plenty of cultural similarities together with the aforementioned benefits has given Hong Kong the unique position as a “gateway into China”. In fact, around 55% of the Mainland’s source of foreign investment is facilitated through Hong Kong. Many entrepreneurs see Hong Kong not only as a promising city to set up a company, but also as a base to further expand into both the Chinese and wider APAC market.
