The advantages of opening a holding company in Hong Kong
Some of the most important factors that need to be taken into consideration when choosing the location for a holding company are:
- low incorporation costs;
- good tax rates;
- ease of listing and raising capital;
- good government policies and stable economy.
Hong Kong has no withholding tax on dividends and interest and only profits produced in Hong Kong are taxed according to the Hong Kong taxation principles. Income received by a company in Hong Kong from outside the city is not subject to tax. This is an important advantage for holding companies and one of the main reasons why foreign investors choose Hong Kong as a holding company location.
