ICCorp Secretarial Services provides business consulting, secretarial services, and legal advice to prospective business owners and company executives interested in establishing a company or incorporating a business in Hong Kong and overseas. Our knowledgeable staff is available to assist with all aspects of establishing and running a business in numerous countries.
According to Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622) every business that incorporates in Hong Kong must appoint a legal company secretary. This is required of both public and private companies, although requirements vary according to business size and structure.
Regardless of company size or structure, the secretary is responsible for maintaining the legal integrity of the business, including management of the day to day legal requirements. Duties include but are not limited to compiling company data, recording and presenting official statistics and numbers, recording and keeping company meeting minutes, keeping the statutory books, compiling and presenting financial data, assisting board members with their legal responsibilities, and keeping the company up to date on new requirements and regulations.
In addition to this, the secretary, whether a natural person or the body corporate, must reside in or have its place of principle office, in Hong Kong. This can present a problem for foreign businesses and companies desiring to expand operations in Hong Kong.
ICCorp provides local, trusted professionals who will meet these requirements, take care of the regulatory details, and advise you on proper compliance so that your business can thrive.
