My friend opened a company in HK 4 years ago because it was so easy, but then realized that he was getting threats form his secretary as to the crimes he was committing for not doing audits, not paying government fees, not renewing the company, etc... He was amazed that he even had to pay a bunch of money and work to close this company who opened in 5 minutes from Taiwan.
This is plain simple a government hustle and my friend block his secretary and never did nothing to this. I can understand why. He never hear from this again and he´s fine.
I think that I will follow his steps one day: easy and rightful way vs hard and unfair way.
