Hong Kong is a free port, which means imported and exported goods do not have to pay any tariffs, nor do they have any tariff quotas or surcharges. This fact alone has attracted investors from different countries to develop in Hong Kong over the decades. Together with Hong Kong’s geographical advantages, it is safe and sound for overseas companies to enter the Mainland through Hong Kong as a springboard. As the most important financial and business center in Asia, Hong Kong is also a leading location for trading companies since this special administrative region has advantageous policies for trading, which includes import and export activities.

Hong Kong boasts a business-friendly environment, low taxes, the rule of law, free economy, modern infrastructure, and wealth of talent.

As a well-known logistics and maritime services hub as well as a regional trading centre, Hong Kong is ideally positioned to be the “super-connector” between the Mainland and the rest of the world. As China’s major international financial centre, and one of the world’s financial capitals, Hong Kong has the experience, the expertise, and the connections to play a role as a major fundraising hub.

FAQs for Trading Service in Hong Kong

A trading service is a business that specializes in buying, stocking, and delivering products to customers.

Despite its small size, HK is one of the largest exporters of merchandise trade and is also an enormous exporter of commercial service.

There are two primary reasons for this:

  1. – Hong Kong’s ‘free trade policy’ – a policy that minimizes barriers and eliminates tariffs on the import or export of goods.
  2. – CEPA – The Closer Economic Partnership Agreement (otherwise known as the Hong Kong-China Free Trade Agreement) gives HK companies preferential access to the Mainland China market. This means that as long as you produce a ‘Certificate of Hong Kong Origin’ you won’t have to pay any tariffs.

Depending on the goods you work with, operating a trading business might require you to hold certain permits.

Typically you will need a license to import any goods that could be damaging to public health or that could pose a security threat.

Some examples include:

  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Food items
  • Animals
  • Pesticides
  • Hazardous chemicals
  • Radio transmission equipment
  • Importing/exporting of plants
  • Radioactive substances
  • Strategic commodities
  • And more

Be sure to contact us to see if you need to apply for any specific permits or licenses.

While it is possible to do it yourself, if you are registering or forming a trading business in Hong Kong, we always recommend hiring an agency that provides professional trading services.

Hiring an agency will help ensure that everything is being done in full cooperation with government protocols and laws.

Registering and forming a business without an agency can be risky as it can set you up for problems later down the line.
