The incorporation structure provides your company with several benefits, including tax structures that can save you money, liability protection that can safeguard personal assets, and investor approval that can help your startup raise funding. Setting up a company in Hong Kong enables the startup having close proximity to Asian markets, capital freedom, robust financial market and vibrant investment climate.
In this session, we are honoured to have Mr. Padraig Walsh sharing about importance of incorporation, process for incorporation and the ongoing compliance with CUHK entrepreneurs and like-minded individuals.
