I have a question regarding the rules for IC in HK. I tried to do some research but finished more confused than before I started...
I'm planning to move to HK in the near future (dependent visa, married to HK resident). I'm working as an independent contractor for an American company, which is paying me bi-weekly to my US account.
As I'm not a US citizen/resident, I don't need to pay tax there.
Nothing with my work is related to HK, I'm either working remotely or traveling to projects around the world. The reason I'm moving to HK is to be able to spend more time with my wife between my projects.
Do I need to register myself in anyway in HK? I give invoices to the US company, but they are just for their paper-trail so they can show that they are paying me.
I don't want to find some time in the future that I'm having issues or did something that is illegal in HK.
Will appreciate your input
