Your company registered address is the address listed in the records of the Hong Kong government.
Here’s 6 tips about the registered address of your Hong Kong company.
According to Section 658 of the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance of Hong Kong, all Hong Kong companies must have a registered office address in Hong Kong.
This is the address where all communications and government notices can be sent.
All of these letters have a set submission deadline attached. A late fee will incur if that deadline is missed.

This means that a residential address could also be used as a registered office address for a company.

Considering all of these points, most entrepreneurs prefer having another registered office address even if they continue to run their business from home for privacy.
The standard practice is to use the registered address services of a professional company secretary such as Air Corporate.

Most companies choose to keep their company documents and statutory records (such as the registers of members, register of directors, significant controllers register) at their registered office address.
