OVERVIEW ABOUT HONGKONG
Hong Kong is situated at the south-eastern tip of the mainland of China . A total area of just under 1,100 square kilometers covers Hong Kong Island , Kowloon and the New Territories and Islands . Its population is around 8 million. Varied people come to HONGKONG to set up varied companies for varied purposes, since HONGKONG companies have their own varied advantages.  

FLEXIBLE COMPANY'S NAME
In HONGKONG we are free to make a choice of companies' names, if not registered before. But you are advised to choose the name of your company carefully. It is very important that you portray the image you want for your new company. You are also required to avoid using any company name which may be too similar to any existing company or trademark. A company name can be in English, in Chinese, or both. In cases where the liability of members is limited, whether limited by shares or guarantee, the name must end with "Limited". A proposed company name cannot be the same as any of the existing name registered at the Companies Registry.  

BUSINESS SCOPE
One of the most exciting events covered in the formation of a HONGKONG company is the free business scope. Business scope is not really defined by the government for the businesses you carry on in Hong Kong. If we finish business registration, we can involve in any sectors we want. Generally speaking, business scope is not really limited in HONGKONG.
