Setting up a new Hong Kong company from abroad
You need not be a Hong Kong citizen or resident to establish a company in Hong Kong.
No physical presence is required. You can set up your company online from anywhere through us. Startupr will ensure that you receive all your company documents. We can also internationally authenticate (apostille) them so you can do business and open bank accounts outside Hong Kong for a Hong Kong company. Just select this option in the online form. We have no surcharges or extra fees for international customers simply because they’re outside Hong Kong.
Setting up a company in a foreign environment can be frustrating. Our experts handle the administrative maze, giving you the time and freedom to succeed with your company.
No worries or misunderstandings about differences between business cultures. Our English-fluent staff and European management smooths the process, helping you overcome any obstacles.
We pledge clear, transparent communication, cost efficiency, and total trustworthiness.
We all know today’s environment is highly competitive, so safeguarding your information is vital. We protect your data, keep it strictly confidential, and, unless ordered by government authority, never share any information about your company or business concepts with anyone.
To make sure we incorporate your business as soon as possible, we developed special software that instantly highlights or corrects errors as you fill out the online form. Our system then transfers your information to all remaining documents. To prevent missing crucial deadlines, our system not only cues reminders of legally required annual filings, but uploads your company’s filing and renewal documents through Companies Registry Hong Kong.
Stop worrying over filing deadlines and penalties. We make sure you’re alerted well ahead, in time to prepare and submit all documents.

You may choose from 3 different levels of service to set up your Hong Kong company. The most convenient is our full company formation package, with its many advantages: company incorporation, registered office address, nominal company secretary, annual return filling, documents certification through the Hong Kong government, and bank account opening.
Alternatively, you may wish to provide your own Hong Kong address and corporate secretary, or choose to file the annual Hong Kong renewal yourself. With Startupr, you’re always free to select the service that suits you best.
After submitting your data, our SameDay system immediately translates it into the form required by Companies Registry. Your company should then be incorporated within a few hours. With our process entirely online, you can do it all in a very short time, without ever leaving your seat!
