After the registration documents are signed and returned, we will update the records and prepare the Bank Kit Set. The whole registration process is complete and all final documents (together with the Bank Kit Set) will be despatched to client. At this time, client may schedule to visit Hong Kong for bank account opening (but client is normally required to prepare business plan or collect business proof for bank account opening). If required, client may select our bank attendance services so our staff may attend the bank meeting during the bank account opening process. If for any reasons client omits to bring along some documents, he/she may send these to our office and we will follow-up with the bank.
