Formation of a UK limited company

Hong Kong was a colony of the United Kingdom before it returned to the motherland in 1997, so Hong Kong has many laws and regulations that are very similar to those of the United Kingdom, including company regulations and taxation principles. The UK's company law system is as complete as Hong Kong's, so it is possible to do business and open bank accounts around the world. The British tax system also implements the principle of source taxation as in Hong Kong. Taxes are only levied on transactions that occur in the country, and all overseas businesses are exempted from taxation.
