All Hong Kong companies are required to file annual return with the Companies Registry and the Inland Revenue Department. The accounting and auditing reports are included in the annual compliance obligations, regardless where the business activities take place.

You can apply for Offshore status with Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department (IRD) as soon as you file annual tax return for the first time. The process might take several months as IRD will raise questions for directors during the investigation. The Offshore Claim can be effective in 3 or 5 years; however, annual auditing is always compulsory.

In Hong Kong, licenses or permits are required for an employment agency, event-related activities, travel agency, education, restaurant, and retail shop, if the business is operated in Hong Kong.
