The success of Hong Kong in the international company world has remained unbroken since being returned to communist China. The Chinese leaders wisely left the English system unchanged, and have not allowed others to have a say in the operation of the city state either. Hong Kong is a leader in the number of companies formed, not only in the region, but also at the world level. More and more LAVECO clients who wish to arrange their affairs for the long term are choosing Hong Kong, even if it appears to be more expensive. One of the major ingredients of success is the fact that income from outside the territory is not subject to tax in Hong Kong, with only locally-sourced profits being taxed at 16%.
