How-to-Sell-Shares-of-a-Hong-Kong-Company.jpgThe shares of a company in Hong Kong can be transferred based on an agreement for the sale of those shares. In order to sell shares of a Hong Kong company, investors and entrepreneurs will need to follow the rules and regulations included in the Companies Ordinance.
The new Companies Ordinance in Hong Kong includes a no-par regime for the shares of a company. This means that there is no minimum set price at which the shares of a company can be issued. This applies to all companies incorporated in Hong Kong and it became mandatory for companies incorporated after 2014.

Changing share ownership in Hong Kong

Selling shares changes their ownership and they are transferred to their new possessor. The shares can be fully or partially transferred in order to change the percentage of ownership or change the owner of the company altogether.
One of our Hong Kong company formation agents can help you with the transfer. We can help prepare the documents, as needed, based on information provided by you. For this service, you will need to provide the number of shares to the transferred, the identification details of the settler and the buyer, copies of the company’s Articles of Association and others, as needed.

Taxes on the transfer of shares in Hong Kong

The transfer of company shares in Hong Kong is subject to stamp duty. The Hong Kong Internal Revenue Department calculates the net asset value of the transfer and for this purpose, the parties that perform the transfer will need to provide a few documents like the audited report, the Share Sale Agreement (when applicable), the company’s constitutive documents and other information.
The transfer of the shares is usually completed in three to five days, depending on the number of shares and the particularities of the transfer. One of our company registration agents in Hong Kong can assist you during this process.
You can contact us if you want to open a company in Hong Kong or if you need assistance in share transfers or purchases.
