What is a representative office?

COI - Certificate Of Incumbency

Representative office is set up by a foreign company to engage in business liaison in the selected country/jurisdiction or to enable clients to visit an domestic office where the main office is abroad.

However, it is not allowed for the office to be directly involved in operational activities. In general, a representative office can be established before an company formation, as the first step to enter local market and test the business environment in that particular country/jurisdiction.

Representative offices are usually easier to establish than a branch or subsidiary, as they are not used for actual “business” (e.g. sales) and therefore there is less incentive for them to be regulated.

China & Hongkong – Offshore

Beijing plans for HK-Mainland Offshore Drive: Beijing’s top planning agency is drafting a raft of measures to encourage mainland firms to use Hong Kong as a springboard for offshore investment. Measures would include encouraging more mainland firms to list in Hong Kong and issue yuan-denominated bonds in the city to finance overseas projects, and to encourage mainland firms to set up operations in Hong Kong specifically for overseas investment. The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) will support joint investment by mainland and Hong Kong firms in overseas infrastructure, mining, energy, high-tech, advanced manufacturing, and logistics projects via equity investment, M&A, and greenfield investment (SCMP).

from our mailbox  –  FAQ (our responses in green):


Hi Tomas,


Thanks for the quick reply. A few questions:
  • if I appoint a secretary, what’s the advantage of a nominee director? Could I just name my partner as second director?
you can open the bank account remotely, you will NOT need to come to EU
  • in why cases would I need my documents to be certified by apostille?
in case you will use the company documents in different jurisdiction
  • can I have a bank account in another country?
yes, you can as far as your documents follow bank’s requirements, you should ask bank about the requirements for bank account opening by non domestic entity.
