Does Choosing Not to Pay Yourself a Salary Mean It’s OK to Run a Business in Hong Kong Without Getting an Investment Visa First?
Posted in Investment Visas, The Hong Kong Visa Geeza, Your Question Answered /
There appears to be a misconception among foreign nationals that you can be living here and it be OK to run a business in Hong Kong without getting an investment visa just so long as you don’t pay yourself a salary…
I currently hold a working visa which is still valid for almost 2 more years.
My contract has now been terminated and I would like to set up a limited liability company in order to do some freelance work.
Can I set up the company and send invoices to my customer even if I am on the old visa?
I do not need to pay myself salary at the moment, so can I wait to apply for a new visa until then?
So I would not be working for my company but my company would already get money without having an employee.
Thanks for your feedback
