When an overseas company, a company that is not incorporated in Hong Kong, establishes a place of business in Hong Kong, that is a representative office. The establishment of representative offices in Hong Kong by an overseas company is governed by Part XI of the Companies Ordinance. Many companies will create a representative office when they don’t want to create a whole new business and still conduct business under the overseas name. In the instance that a company’s name clashes or is too similar to a Hong Kong company, the overseas company will be forced to create a new name for its representative office.
