You have successfully registered your limited company in Hong Kong. What should you expect now?
There are several things you will have to deal with and you can do so either:
- at the first directors' meetings; or
- you can write a resolution of directors (if permitted by the Articles of the company)
What needs to be sorted out at the meeting of directors/by the resolution of directors:
- Appointment of chairman chairman of the company shall be appointed in the Articles
- Appointment of directors the first directors of the company are named in NNCI Form (or NNC1G Form). Consent to act as a company director needs to be signed by the directors in the incorporation form.
Otherwise, the NNC3 Form must be signed by the respective directors and filed with the Companies Registry in Hong Kong within 15 days from the incorporation date.
- Appointment of Company Secretary company secretary must be either a Hong Kong resident or a company incorporated in Hong Kong. The particulars of the company secretary must be reported to the Companies Registry.
