1.1. SERVICE FEE

Initially, to successfully commence the new offshore company, besides paying some set-up cost to the government, you also need a company secretary who will be your company’s representative responsible for the efficient administration of your company, particularly with regard to ensuring compliance with statutory and regulatory requirements and for ensuring that decisions of the board of directors are implemented.

  • Basic establishment fee
  • Corporate secretarial structuring fee

1.2. ANNUAL FEE

Besides the mandatory government fees, you need to maintain your company-secretary service annually. The company secretary will assist your company to carry out some fundamental functions including the following.

  • Annual statutory fee, registered office, registered agent
  • Annual compliance fee – to cover KYC and corporate governance procedures
  • Disbursements and other recoverables
  • Minimum accounting fee
  • Minimum audit retainer

1.3. GOVERNMENT FEE

According to government financial policy, non-resident companies have to pay particular fees each year to maintain their company licences . Most countries, except for Mauritius and the Cayman Islands, do not require an annual return.

  • Annual licence fee – payable to the government for one year
  • Annual return filing fee – payable to the government for one year

Notes:

  • Clients need to pay 2 types of fee: government fee and service fee. The government fee is mandatory and can be done via our service.
  • The renewal fee for Hong Kong Company from the 2nd year includes: Renew Business Registration Certificate (BRC) – HK$2250.00 (~ US$288.00) + 10% service charge of US$28.00, service fee of US$399.00 and annual return fee of US$84.00 USD = US$799.00.
  • For Freezone company, it’s required to rent an Office and apply for a business license. Office prices may be different depending on various factors (size of the office, number of Visa eligible)
