Difference between Hong Kong unlimited company and limited company

First, let’s understand the difference between forming a Hong Kong limited company and an unlimited company:

Unlimited Company Limited Company
Legal Status
No legal status, only one can own assets and sign contracts in proprietor's name or partner's name
A limited company is a distinct legal entity that is able to enter into contracts in its own name.
Debt and Liability
Unlimited liability, proprietor or partners faces risk of personal liability or even bankruptcy.
Liability of shareholders is limited to issued shares. Company liquidation normally does not affect individual shareholders.
If an unlimited company encounters debt problems, the shareholders and their partners are fully responsible for the debt.
If a company becomes insolvent and needs to wind up its business, it is only necessary to wind up the limited company and the shareholders are not liable.
Hong Kong residents or Hong Kong permanent residents
Hong Kong or non-Hong Kong residents

If the applicant is not a Hong Kong resident, the company secretary must be a Hong Kong resident or a Hong Kong registered limited company
The proprietor cannot make a contract with the company
Shareholders can enter into contracts with the company and file lawsuits
Cost of Incorporation
Lower, only need to do the tax declaration every year
Higher, accounts and audits are required every year
