Bank Account

Please be aware that Hong Kong banks’ due diligence processes are highly difficult due to stricter requirements. Some of our clients still enjoy successful bank accounts openings.

You may select from the following options:

1. International Bank Account (Online opening)

We strongly recommend opening an international or offshore bank account which will yield you and your business multiple benefits. An offshore bank account can be opened remotely.

  • CIM Banque (Switzerland)
  • ABC Banking (Mauritius)
  • Standard Chartered (Singapore)
  • DBS (Singapore) *
  • OCBC Singapore (Singapore) *

*Due to new COVID-19 traveling restrictions, DBS and OCBC Singapore are allowing video conferencing as an alternative for a physical meeting with a bank officer. Please contact us for further details.

Update on October 2020: CIM Banque has changed their compliance requirements, please contact us at Startupr for more details. We can further assist you if you’re interested in opening a bank account in Singapore.

2. Hong Kong Bank Account

Due to new HK regulations, opening a Hong Kong bank account remotely has become more restricted. Hong Kong banks now follow revised HK Bank Ordinances and Know Your Customers’ obligations, making new bank account openings more difficult.

However, Startupr is in a position to help its clients arrange bank appointments with OCBC Wing Hang, Standard Chartered, HSBC and Bank of China. Kindly see our fee below:
