5 Tips for Expanding into Hong Kong and China


About this Event

Considering expanding your business to Hong Kong or China?

Typically, most entrepreneurs would consider whether to open a Hong Kong company or Mainland Chinese company. While both options are popular, these jurisdictions have completely different legal systems and ways of conducting business. Having a Hong Kong company doesn’t mean that you can operate in the same way as a Mainland Chinese company and vice versa. So, which option makes the most sense for your business?

We have invited FastLane and Chak & Associates to have a webinar on the topic where they will share their views on this topic, giving you will have the chance to ask these experts questions.

What we’ll discuss:

– Common company structure in HK and China;
– Registered address requirements and the role of company secretary;
– Ongoing regulatory compliances such as filing with various returns;
– How to avoid director personal liability; and
– How to deregister a Hong Kong company
