An account can become not only a fundamental tool for mutual settlements with suppliers and partners and access to international markets but also a means for achieving other business goals. In some cases, a bank account in Hong Kong indicates the company's status, level, prestige, and reliability in doing business with such a legal entity. For this purpose, accounts are opened in the world's best banks. These structures operate in Hong Kong, an important financial center. The country's legislation is loyal and friendly to non-residents, tax benefits are practical here, and banking secrecy is respected. Despite the transformation processes the region is undergoing, starting and doing business here is potentially profitable.
