Appointing a company secretary is mandatory in Hong Kong. With blynq you get expertise, efficiency and real support. Turn a requirement into a business advantage.

Do I need a company secretary in Hong Kong?

Yes, you do. It is not simply a nice-to-have, it’s required by law (the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance). But with a good company secretary, you don’t just fulfil a legal requirement, it’s an added value to your business.

If you’re the sole director or shareholder of your HK company, you can’t double up as the secretary. Also, your company secretary should be a person or company residing in Hong Kong.

Now, before you stress out about adding another task to your to-do list or expanding your team: it’s allowed (and very common) to outsource this role. You’ll get the skill without the hefty price tag.
