Hong Kong - Offshore Jurisdiction


HONG KONG is a Special Administrative Region ("SAR") of China where the tax and legal system is using traditional British Law, with modifications to suit the environment in Hong Kong and in China. Hong Kong is considered as the gateway to China and most clients established Hong Kong companies in view to further business with China or establishment in China. If the company is having non-Hongkong source of income, it is non-taxable (subject to the assessment of the Inland Revenue Department). The tax rate is low when compared with other jurisdictions. A standard private limited company is usually incorporated with an authorised capital of HKD10,000.00 [MORE backgrounds of Hong Kong]
