This process is made easier as many Hong Kong based banks are recognized all over the world such as HSBC and Hang Seng Bank.

Low Corporate Tax Rates

Companies that retain their offshore status and refrain from doing business in Hong Kong will see a tax rate of 0%. Entities who wish to conduct business within Hong Kong jurisdiction will see a 16.5% rate of profit.
