Virtual Office Address to Register Hong Kong Company
Our mail-forwarding service will collect the mail and then ensure that the essential mail is scanned instantly.
While setting up a company in Hong Kong, business owners have to face many important decisions. They need to have a business plan, keep organized company accounts, complete all the company filings, and look for a place to set up the business. If you rent a place in Hong Kong, your company expenses will also go up with the purchase of desks, computers, electricity, wifi and other office equipment.
Hong Kong Office Address
The first thing you will need to set up your company is a business location. However, you will have to invest time and resources to look for the best place that offers the most amount of benefits.
Startupr can help your company by giving our company’s address as your government registered address. With our guidance, all the processes of incorporating your company and getting a registered address for your business can be done hassle-free.
A registered address in Hong Kong is a statutory requirement
As per the Companies Ordinance (CO) in Hong Kong, incorporated companies must have a registered address in Hong Kong. This address will act as the official address for the business to receive all the notices and communication sent by the government. If you want our address to be used as your registered address, you have to hire us as your Company secretary.
Using Home Address as Registered Address
If you reside in Hong Kong, you may be thinking of using your home address as your registered address. Some criteria and regulations need to be completed, and if somehow you failed to meet the conditions, there are chances that your permit to operate the business in Hong Kong can be revoked.
In case you are using a rented residential address as your registered address, you have to make sure that the terms are written in the tenancy agreement. The terms should state that the rented home address can be used as a registered address, and this address is allowed to receive all the communication sent by the government for the business. This is why the Companies Registry strongly advises using a commercial address, not a home address, as the company’s registered address.
Criteria for a registered address
As per the CO, a registered address has to meet the following criteria:
- It should be a physical address in Hong Kong.
- It cannot be A P.O. box address.
- The place should be able to receive all the communication and notices issued by the government.
Disclaimer: Government entities will issue some mail as a reminder for the annual requirements and new initiatives. It would help if you kept an eye on the mail daily so that important information isn’t missed.
People prefer to hire professionals to act as their company secretary and use an office address as their registered address rather than their residential address. And here, Startupr can help. We will provide you a registered address and help you deal with your company’s mail. We can scan and send a copy to your email or post your mail to nearly anywhere in the world.
Business Address vs. Registered Address in Hong Kong
It is mandatory to have a company’s registered address in Hong Kong. However, this doesn’t mean that the company needs to have the same address as their company’s business address where they are operating. Let’s discuss both in detail:
What is the difference between a business address and a registered address?
A business address is used for business matters and is different from a registered address. This address is used for things involving the company such as business contracts, agreements, invoices, and other business-related matters.
This business address will act as the location of the company in Hong Kong. This type of address can be useful for small companies who operate their business from home, but want to use another location as their business address to reduce any potential risks. This address would present a more professional image for the company. Moreover, this address can be useful for mail forwarding, as the documents can be sent to this business address.
On the other hand, a registered address is different, as it is the location to receive important government notices and communication. Under the CO, every company must have a registered address in Hong Kong. This can usually be at the same location as the company secretary for the company.
Virtual Office Address for Registering a Hong Kong Company
The trend of operating your business from home has become more popular these days. But you should consider whether or not you should choose your home as your business address. Setting up your business at your home comes with various tasks such as packing, shipping, and tracking all the mails sent by the government. Moreover, you are exposing all your personal information to third parties and customers, which could increase the risk of people stealing your personal information. However, when you choose a virtual office address for your business, it allows you to eliminate this risk while allowing all your mail nicely organized and kept in one place.
