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).

Company formation in Sweden – how difficult is it? How do you feel about to open and run business in Sweden?


Here is the whole answer from Quora:


I ran a small recruiting agency for creative professionals until 2001, but had to shut it down after the whole thing went bust. Still, I found it quite easy to set up, run and make good money. There’s lots of talented, responsible and ethical Swedes out there to employ and we did quite well for several years.


If you do set up a business you’ll have to price things in accordance with the Swedish tax system, compensation expectations and general culture of Sweden in order to make money. If you’re used to another system it might take a while to figure these things out, but it’s the way things work there and for the most part, it works quite well.


If you have the right product or service and make the right business moves setting up a successful business in Sweden is definitely doable.

Renewal of Business Certificate in Hong Kong

What does it mean an offshore or being an offshore?  Offshore company!

One of the most exciting thing in regards to Hong Kon, it’s the fact that almost all government requirements and payments might be done online.
We are going to talk about the fees and levy of the Business Registration certificate.


According to Inland Revenue Department:
“For registered business, a business registration renewal demand note will be sent by the Business Registration Office approximately 1 month before the current Business Registration Certificate expires. Upon payment, the demand note will become a valid Business Registration Certificate. If you do not receive such a demand note, you should inform the Commissioner in writing within 1 month of the expiry of your current Business Registration Certificate.”


Payment by wire transfer – T/T


How to pay the Business Registration fees via Internet banking?


1. visit:
2. Tax Information – Others
3. Business Registration
4. Payment Methods
5. Payment via Internet
6. “Follow the instruction”

In the e-banking (for our example we use HSBC)

1. Bill Payments
2. Register bills
3. add – Inland Revenue Department
4. than go to – Bill Payments
5. chose as a merchant – Inland Revenue Department
6. Bill Payee Account No. – add – the Business Registration Certificate number
7 in Bill Type chose Business Registration Fee

This might be one of the way how you cut. You will not need to have it done by your company secretary on your behalf. Pay that by yourself!

Bear in mind that it’s mandatory to renew you Hong Kong business certificate every year. You don’t need anyone to do it on your behalf however in order to maintain your company in the order with HK legislation, please keep eye on that.
