www.sbc.com.hk, they will help, charge you some service fees.
This looks like best option honestly. What kind of documents does one need to present with the forms there? First time with business management and all.
Also, sole proprietorship is something i'd opt for as well since it's just me holding up the company and we work every now and then. honestly, i just need a registered business in order to open a bank account in the name of the company - does this cost a lot too? i'm thinking HSBC or Hang Seng
from what i can remember you do not need any further documents to register a business.
BUT to open an account at a bank, you need a copy of the actual form that you present to revenue tower. when you submit the form, ask them for a copy, it costs a little extra and is ready in a few days (or they will post it to you).
you then take this copy and a copy of hte business registration to the banks. (ask the banks to send you the info regarding opening a sole-proprietorship company account, it lists everything you need).
if you go to HSBC, you need to make an appointment at one of their "company" offices. i went to one in causeway bay plaza 2. it is a fairly straight forward proposition. i think that you need either $1000 or $2000 to open the account.
good luck, it really is very simple and straight forward.
with HSBC, you can open an account for as little as $1K, but if you have less than $5K in your account, they'll deduct a nominal fee of $40 per month. Also, make sure you don't get caught into the Power Vantage account business with them.
just checked. the form for getting a bank account is $27. takes a week to process the cert for new applicants or a day for old registered businesses
