The nominee agent in Hong Kong
acts on behalf of another individual or on behalf of a legal entity, upon specific request. The agent is chosen and legally nominated to handle one or more business or personal issues. The nominee
can act on behalf of an investor in Hong Kong
during the company registration in Hong Kong
or he can be assigned as a nominee director for a company incorporated in the city.
Any individual that acts as a nominee in Hong Kong must be duly appointed and his or her rights and obligations specified in the company documents or in the amendments thereof.
Nominee directors in Hong Kong
According to the Company Law in Hong Kong
, corporations set-up in the city require at least one director. A nominee director
is an option for those investors who want to protect their identity. The role of the nominee will not interfere with the usual management role of the true company director. His or her purpose is during company registration in Hong Kong
Investors who prefer using this method can draw up a power of attorney, the document which will help them assign specific rights and powers to another party. The activities that may be undertaken by the nominee agent (who, in this case, acts as a director) expire upon the termination date of the said document.
Nominee shareholders in Hong Kong
The same principle can apply to shareholders in Hong Kong
. Most types of companies require two or more shareholders. When investors want to protect their identity they can use a nominee shareholder
to act on their behalf within the company and during the shareholder’s meetings. When the company shareholder and director are one and the same, the nominee agent
is able to act in both situations.
