    Changing Hong Kong company secretary

    I have a HK company for trade purposes and I would like to change my current company secretary which charges way too high compared to market price. More specifically I would like to change to the company I currently use for virtual office.
    Is that possible without any problem, and without passing through the company that currently serves as my secretary? I guess they won't be that happy to switch by themselves and change my documents to the new one.

    They might not be happy, but as a company secretary they have to follow your instructions. If they dont, it is highly unethical.

    As far as I know, all it takes is a minutes document signed by a director or two (depending on your initial setup) to switch.

    Ask your new secretary what the process is and get them to prepare the documents (it is in their benefit to advice you correctly).
