Can a non-Hong Kong resident be appointed as a director and company secretary of a local limited company?Bessent Professional Services
A non-Hong Kong resident can be appointed as a director of a local limited company. However, the company secretary, who is a natural person, should ordinarily reside in Hong Kong. For company secretary which is a body corporate, its registered office or place of business should be in Hong Kong.
A private local limited company must have at least one director who is a natural person and one company secretary. The sole director cannot act as the company secretary of the same company.
