Thus, Hong Kong is a popular country for business set-up and company formation. Hong Kong has no restrictions on foreign investment and restrictions on foreign ownership. Foreigners can invest in almost any business and own up to 100% of the equity.

A company may be registered with an English name, a Chinese name, or both.
The company name must be approved before you can proceed with the incorporation of a Hong Kong company. A company name with a combination of English words/letters and Chinese characters is not allowed. An English company name must end with the word “Limited” and a Chinese company name must end with the characters “有限公司”.
At least one of the directors must be nature person.
Hong Kong requires at least one director, with an unlimited number of maximum directors permitted. Directors can be a person or a company, and they can be any nationality. They are not required to be a Hong Kong resident. Directors must be 18 years or older, and they cannot be bankrupt or have been convicted for any malpractices.
Hong Kong limited private companies are permitted to have a minimum of one shareholder with a maximum of 50 shareholders.
