An Introduction to Doing Business in Hong Kong 2021–New Publication from Dezan Shira & Associates

Published: 14 Sep 2021

An Introduction to Doing Business in Hong Kong 2021, designed to introduce the fundamentals of doing business in Hong Kong, was created at the beginning of 2021 using the most up-to-date information at the time. It was compiled by Dezan Shira & Associates, a specialist foreign direct investment practice that provides corporate establishment, business advisory, tax advisory and compliance, accounting, payroll, due diligence and financial review services to multinationals investing in emerging Asia.

Since The People’s Republic of China regained sovereignty over Hong Kong from Britain in 1997, Hong Kong has long held a reputation as a popular “gateway” to invest in China. Its geographical proximity to the mainland, double taxation agreement (DTA) network, modern banking system and transparent legal regime have made it an ideal location for foreign businesses to easily operate in. Despite the recent unrest and the COVID-19 epidemic, Hong Kong remains the biggest source of foreign direct investment (FDI) into China and a global financial hub. The latter will be further strengthened with the development of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA). 

An Introduction to Doing Business in Hong Kong 2019 covers the following:

  • Establishing and Running a Business
  • Tax, Audit, and Accounting
  • Human Resources and Payroll

Within these chapters, we discuss a range of different topics that affect doing business in Hong Kong, including investment models, key taxes applicable for foreign companies, and employment contracts.
