          What Business Structures Can Be Registered in Hong Kong?

          While there are numerous business types that can be established in Hong Kong, you must first make a decision whether you want to run your operations from Hong Kong or from wherever you are. This decision will benefit you in other areas as well, such as taxation. We've broken down each business structure below to help you determine which one is right for you:

          • Sole proprietorship
          • Business partnership
          • Private limited company by shares
          • Public limited company by shares
          • Company limited by guarantee
          • Branch office
          • Representative office.

          Through Zolvit, our goal is to eliminate the barriers that prevent people from interacting with traditional financial institutions and government agencies, such as paperwork and bureaucracy.

          We genuinely think about making life easier for smaller companies so that they can focus on growing their company rather than being bogged down by administrative tasks.

          Everything is handled by our skilled partners in a timely and effective manner.
