Hong Kong is a big playground for traders and many decide to open up companies in this crown jewel. Low taxes, proximity to Mainland China and efficiency are just a few reasons why people incorporate here.
If you decide to sell products, or open a company in Hong Kong, I highly recommend that you register your trademark. The process will not take a long time, nor cost you a lot of money.
Therefore, I’ve written this guide where I explain the crucial information you need to know when registering a trademark in Hong Kong. Let’s have a look.
Hong Kong trademark law
Hong Kong has two different trademark laws, also referred to as ordinances:
- Trade Marks Ordinance (Cap. 559)
- Trade Marks Rules (Cap. 559A)
Both of these are effective as of April 4th, 2004.
