Company Secretary

04 August, 2015

If you would like to open a new company in Hong Kong, bear in mind that all Hong Kong companies are required to have a company secretary.

Not the type of secretary who answers the phone. The company secretary carries out the Chief of administrative officer function.

Requirements of company secretary:

  • Must be a Hong Kong resident or local incorporated company
  • Every company is required to have 1 director and 1 company secretary. If the company has 1 company director,  the director cannot act as a company secretary
  • Must have adequate experience and knowledge

Duties and responsibilities

  • General government duties e.g. ensuring the annual return of the company is filed on time
  • Communication with shareholders
  • Supervision of the issuance of share capitals

You can find the list of registered agents here.
