Company-Formation-Comparison-Hong-Kong-vs-Malaysia.jpgHong Kong is an international business hub and many foreign companies choose the city to base their Asian operations, either in the form of a branch or a subsidiary. Recently, other Asian cities have grown to become more attractive in terms of international trade regimes, taxation, and incentives for investors. What advantages does Hong Kong have compared to Malaysia and vice versa? Our Hong Kong company formation agents show you the most important characteristics.
 

Hong Kong’s advantages

 
Investors in Hong Kong can open a public or private limited liability company, partnerships, sole traders, branches or representative offices. As little as three days are needed to incorporate a new company in Hong Kong. Our experts in company registration in Hong Kong can help you during the necessary registration procedures.
 
Hong Kong is also well-known for its low customs tariffs and low taxation regime. Many international trade companies and investors who engage in import and export choose to open their company here because of these tax advantages and because they have access to the large Victoharborbour. Investors who are interested in Hong Kong company formation and the laws applicable to foreign companies that base their trade activities here can find more information from a company registration expert.
 
The Companies Law does not impose a mandatory minimum share capital for companies in Hong Kong and investors are free to start a business with their initial available capital. While for some business sectors it is advisable to have a larger capital, start-ups in Hong Kong benefit from an important advantage: because there are located in a well-known financial centre they have several options for alternative funding for their activities, including, but not limited to, crowd-funding. 
 

Malaysia’s advantages

 
From a geographical point of view, Malaysia is located further from key markets in the region such as Mainland China. However, the country is improving its infrastructure and, like many other Asian countries such as Thailand, it has taken considerable steps in improving its economic policies and legislation for foreign investments.
 
Malaysia is a good location to base a business in Southeast Asia and can be a good location to base offshore operations.
 
Both countries offer several attractive options for legal entities, suited both for small companies and large corporations alike. Investors can open a branch in Malaysia or incorporate a private limited liability company as well as other business forms. Both countries have signed a large number of double tax treaties that allow foreign investors to be taxed only once, at the source of the income.
