This approach has earned us the trust of existing clients, countless referrals and new “shopping clients” undecided between several providers…
Well – yes you should … unless you have really done nothing. Not a single transaction. For example, you didn't have any bank account and you didn’t sell nor buy anything. In this case, you can file a notice of non-commencement of business.
The accountant is putting your accounts together to reflect the financial performance of your business. The auditor is a third party that will check that the accountant did a good job.

Normally, we do not advise our clients to apply for offshore tax exemption for 3 reasons:
-The international environment became more complicated recently and is about to become totally transparent by 2018 (with the CRS of OECD – Common Reporting Standard). We believe advising our clients to claim offshore tax exemption (and therefore demonstrate the lack of substance in Hong Kong) is not responsible as they may face issues later down the road in their country of residence.
-The process itself… As Hong Kong is trying to enter OECD they are being more and more stringent and picky to deliver the tax exemption. It is important to work with experts that keep an eye on the IRD policies. So we prefer to transfer to companies that only do that.
-Our own Strategy: Our strategy is to advise our clients to onshore in Hong Kong and create a tax effective structure in Hong Kong with an actual taxation of 5 to 15% instead of going for an attractive but difficult, costly and dangerous 0% (exempt). Nowadays, we recommend either a total onshoring with the entrepreneur living here or a semi-nomad option with a HK residency but live-abroad (generally southeast asia) with a proper residency status.
