According to section 475(2) of the Companies Ordinance, the director of a private company having only one director must not also be a company secretary of the company.
  • Can the shareholder and director of a company be a non-Hong Kong resident?
    The Companies Ordinance does not impose any restriction on the nationality of shareholders and directors of a Hong Kong limited company. Non-Hong Kong residents are also eligible to incorporate a Hong Kong limited company and serve as shareholders and directors. All individuals, including Hong Kong residents, Mainland residents, and overseas individuals, can become shareholders of a company. However, individuals who are to become directors of a company must be at least 18 years old, regardless of their residency status (Hong Kong residents, Mainland residents, or overseas individuals).
  • Is there any restriction on the number of shares proposed to be issued and the number of founder members (shareholders) of a local company limited by shares?
    The Companies Ordinance has not prescribed any requirement for the number of shares proposed to be issued. A local company limited by shares shall be formed by at least one founder member. However, if a limited company has more than 50 members (shareholders), it has to be registered as a "public company".
  • How long does it take to register a Hong Kong limited company?
    The time required for Biz & Bird to register a Hong Kong limited company is as follows: If the founder member(s) [shareholder(s)] and director(s) hold Hong Kong Identity Cards or valid passports (regardless of their nationality) and register a limited company in their personal capacity, the registration process can be completed within approximately 1-3 working days. If the founder member(s) [shareholder(s)] and director(s) only hold PRC identity cards or they are corporate bodies, the registration process will generally take about 7-10 working days. This timeframe begins from the moment all documents are signed by the shareholders and directors and delivered to our Hong Kong office. *The above time required is for reference only and is subject to the relevant circumstances and the approval time by the Companies Registry.
