Hong Kong Company Secretary

How can Woodburn help you?


A Hong Kong company secretary is a statutory officer required for every company registered in Hong Kong. The role is crucial for ensuring the company complies with local laws and regulations.​ The company secretary can be an individual residing in Hong Kong or a corporate entity with a registered office or place of business in Hong Kong.
