There are a multitude of benefits for foreign companies to form an offshore company in Hong Kong. 

Offshore Corporations, LLCs, Trusts

The most stringent privacy laws and offshore banking jurisdictions provide for financial privacy as well as asset protection from divorce, creditors, judgments and lawsuits, and the privacy of ownership.

Establishing an offshore company and/or relocating the corporate structure of your business to an overseas jurisdiction can be a vital step in protecting your assets from lawsuits. Moreover, there is potential for you to take advantage of international tax protection policies and grow your investments overseas.

Topics of offshore tax policies are constantly changing, and tax is often a complex subject for most people to grasp. We must continue to be well informed, to understand the future of new regulations and the latest global trends in the field of offshore companies.

Bank Accounts

Opening a bank account for an offshore company is one of the major barriers that many businessmen face. Since the earlier part of 2012, many banks worldwide have placed restrictions on the opening of bank accounts for offshore companies. More recently in 2018, some banks are beginning to open the door for offshore companies to open accounts for such businesses. These are international banks that are renowned and reputable, like HSBC Bank, Standard Chartered Bank and OCBC Bank in secure and stable countries like Hong Kong and Singapore. The requirements have now changed, and are more focused on ways to avoid money laundering activities, and establishing global standards on information exchange. Like the business laws in offshore jurisdictions, bank account opening requirements have changed significantly over time, and we must be aware of such requirements in order to create such accounts for our clients more easily and efficiently.
