Hong Kong Company information are publicly available with a simple registration search.
Forget about business confidentiality and privacy, we live in a new era of transparency and everybody could access information.
A Hong Kong Company registration search will reveal the director(s) name and addresses with their passports number.
A Hong Kong Company registration name will also reveal the shareholders names, addresses, passports numbers, corporate shareholders names and addresses as well as additional information about the capital and the number of shares.
To access information about a Hong Kong Company you should go online and pay a small fee, at least not all the information are available free of charge as it is the case for the UK company house.
Less to say a small fee will not be a constraint to unwanted curiosity so how to protect you personal information ?
A ) by using Hong Kong nominee director services
B) by using Hong Kong nominee shareholder services
Hong Kong Company registration search could be performed on https://www.cr.gov.hk/
Hong Kong nominee director services are facing some reluctance by the banks during the onboarding process, the reasons behind privacy needs should be explained in details and the financial institution should be convinced of the treat created by a public exposure.
Hong Kong nominee shareholders services don’t pose the same issues when banking in Hong Kong, its a more common situation.
