Friday, July 9th, 2010
  • 在BVI有限公司成立之前, 公司董事及股東必須提供護照及住址証明正本. 如不能的話, 必須提供護照及住址証明的核証或公正影印本.
  • 不是所有公司或團體都願意跟BVI有限公司做生意的. 所以在成立BVI有限公司前,最好詢問供應商及客人是否願意和BVI有限公司做生意。
  • BVI有限公司無須註冊為非香港公司就可以在香港持有物業.
  • BVI有限公司是不能在香港營業及出租物業的. 但是可以把BVI有限公司在香港註冊為非香港公司. 當BVI有限公司註冊為非香港公司之後, 其運作及責任跟一間香港公司差不多. 非香港公司必須申請商業登記證才可以在香港營業, 而每年必須更新商業登記, 提交週年申報表, 核數, 報稅及交稅.
  • BVI有限公司是可以在香港開設銀行帳戶的. BVI有限公司在銀行開戶時必須提供以下文件:
    • 董事及股東的護照及住址証明正本. 如不能的話, 必須提供護照及住址証明的核証本或公正本;
    • 董事就職証明(Certificate of Incumbency);
    • 公司註冊証書(Certificate of Incorporation);
    • 公司章程(Memorandum and Articles of Association)
  • 如果要用BVI有限公司在銀行申請商務信用咭, 公司董事或股東必須在該銀行有私人帳戶, 而商務信用咭會連接到該私人帳戶.
  • 註冊BVI有限公司時, 我們將會提供一個在BVI的註冊地址. 但是這個BVI地址是不能作郵寄之用的. 在註冊公司時, 可以提供一個聯絡地址.除非你想我們為你收取信件, 否則是不用使用我們的聯絡地址服務. 香港的銀行亦可以郵寄文件到世界任何地方. 你可以用一個非香港或非BVI地址作為公司的聯絡地址
  • 公証BVI有限公司文件是比公証香港公司文件貴很多的.
  • 如果公司董事或股東是一名美國公民或永久居民, 公司董事必須簽署一份聲明,証明公司收入是合法的, 及公司的董事或股東會依從美國法律報稅.
  • BVI有限公司是可以在香港開設投資帳戶買賣香港股票. 但是這樣做的話, 該公司在香港會有收入, 可能會被稅局要求申請商業登記及交稅. 如果在香港買賣股票, 最好還是用私人名義. 如果BVI有限公司內其中一位董事或股東是美國或加拿大公民或永久居民, 銀行是不會開設投資帳戶的。

Notes on BVI Company Incorporation

Sunday, July 4th, 2010
  • Before BVI company incorporation, the directors’ and shareholders’ original passports and residential proofs must be provided. If not, the certified true copies or notarized copies of the documents must be provided.
  • Note that not all companies or organizations are willing to do business with BVI companies. Before forming a BVI company, you may want to ask your suppliers or clients whether they are willing to do business with a BVI company.
  • A BVI company can hold properties in Hong Kong without being registered as a non-Hong Kong company.
  • A BVI company by itself cannot conduct business or lease property in Hong Kong. By itself, it cannot subscribe to any services in Hong Kong (such as subscribing mobile phone service or courier service.) However, it can be registered in Hong Kong as a non-Hong Kong company. Once it has been registered, it can be operated as if it were a Hong Kong company, and a Hong Kong business registration will be issued to the BVI company. However, the company will need to file Annual Return and yearly audited financial report to the Hong Kong government, and pay tax in Hong Kong if there is any profit generated here.
  • A BVI company can open a bank account in Hong Kong. The following documents are required for the account opening:
    • the directors’ and shareholders’ original passports and residential proofs. If not, the certified true copies or notarized copies of the documents;
    • Certificate of Incumbency;
    • Certificate of Incorporation;
    • Memorandum and Articles of Association.
  • To obtain a commercial credit card for the BVI company, the commercial credit card will be required to link to a personal bank account in the same bank of the director or shareholder.
  • The BVI company will come with a registered office address in BVI, however, the address cannot be used for mailing purpose. There is no need to use our address as the Corresponding Address of the company unless you want us to receive mails for it. You may use a non-Hong Kong / non-BVI address as the Corresponding Address of the company.
  • The cost of legalizing the documents of a BVI company will be much higher than that of a Hong Kong company.
  • Directors or shareholders of a BVI company who are U.S. citizens or residents will be required to sign a form declaring that all incomes of the company is legal and that they will fulfill their tax filing obligation.
  • BVI companies can open investment bank accounts in Hong Kong to trade stocks. However, as profit may arise in Hong Kong, the BVI companies may be required to be registered as a non-Hong Kong company. Therefore, it is recommended to use a personal bank account to trade stocks in Hong Kong. The banks in Hong Kong are unlikely to open investment accounts to the companies in which U.S. or Canadian citizens or residents are shareholders or directors of the companies.
