How do we register your company
Company Incorporation in Hong Kong - 3(4) steps:
· Startupr is an official Registered Agent of the Company Registry (CR) system in Hong Kong. Startupr's official number is 1095.
- Check the name of the Hong Kong company you want to register. The Hong Kong Government’s official company portal - The Cyber Search Center of the Integrated Companies Registry Information System (ICRIS) - will help you find out whether the company name has been taken or not.
- Download the order form and send it to us.
- Startupr will gather all important information through an online system or send the order form by e-mail or fax.
- Startupr will check whether all requirements are in completed once the application is received; and
- You will process the payment.
- Startupr will submit the application through an online system to the Companies Registry (CR) (The Government Office of the Hong Kong SAR) for a 24-hour processing.
- You will get the notification by e-mail from the CR that the company has been incorporated.
- Startupr will send you documents to be signed. These documents will need to be dispatched back to us.
3. Bank account opening
- Once you get all documents (Certificate of Incorporation, NC1 form, Memorandum and Article of Association), Startupr will set up a meeting with an HSBC bank account manager to open a bank account. You do not need to travel to Hong Kong for bank account opening. However, you can choose to make an appointment in Hong Kong as well.
- Filling out the annual return and taking care of the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
How does Startupr offer one of the fastest incorporation services?
- If Startupr receives the order and payment before 10 A.M. (Hong Kong Time / +8 Greenwich Mean Time), we will process it within 60 minutes. Then, we submit the application through an online system to the Companies Registry (CR) (The Government Office of the Hong Kong SAR) for 24-hour processing. It usually takes up to two hours from the online submission to get the Companies Registry (CR) Notification of Incorporated Company. You and Startupr will then get an email with e-documents (Business Certificate and Incorporation Certificate with the company number). At this point, you can now start using your company. You get the company registration number and business certificate. We order for you the incorporation documents (NC1 form (shares certificate), Memorandum and Articles of Association, Incorporation certificate) in order to open the bank account. Once we receive a notification from the Companies Registry (CR), we will email you the documents to be signed and dispatched to us. If you chose expedited courier service, you can get the document the next day. We do not guarantee processing time by Company Registry (CR), Post service or DHL. Startupr believes that you will not find any other company who can offer a better system in Hong Kong.
Requirements to register your Hong Kong company:
- You do not need to be a Hong Kong resident in order to open a company.
