Hong Kong offers unlimited business opportunities, and serves as a stable hub for global economy and trade.
Now, with the limited offering of effective, the industry is witnessing a rapid increase in the demand for professional and experienced Company Secretarial services firms especially for Public Listed companies in Hong Kong.
For every Hong Kong limited company, it is required to appoint a Hong Kong Company Secretary to administer the corporate compliance matters. In fact, the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance (CO) requires under mandates that all companies incorporated in Hong Kong must have an individual who is a Hong Kong resident or a corporate body incorporated in Hong Kong which holds a Trust or Company Service Provider License to act as Company Secretary and/or to provide corporate services.
In addition to this, the CO requires that every Hong Kong listed company, whether it is incorporated in Hong Kong or elsewhere, must appoint an individual with specific academic or professional qualifications or relevant experience as its Company Secretary. While all Hong Kong listed companies must have someone appointed as the Company Secretary, it is not mandatory that this person be employed by the company. As a matter of fact, most of the Hong Kong listed company appoints an employee of an external professional and independent services firm like APEX to carry out this function. Acting as a Hong Kong Company Secretary for listed companies requires a level of professionalism and expertise of the upmost level which is quite different from what is required of Company Secretaries acting for private businesses. Only a limited number of Hong Kong professional services providers is fully equipped to service every aspect of the Company Secretarial service for both private and listed companies and Apex is one of them.
