Company Formation in Macau

Get started with your Macau company formation.

A former Portuguese colony, Macau became a Special Administrative Region of China on 20 December 1999. In accordance with Macau’s constitutional document, Macau is guaranteed a high degree of autonomy in all matters, including Macau company law. As a result, Macau has developed into a free port with no foreign exchange controls, prompting international businesses and individuals to consider company formation in Macau. Having among the lowest corporate and individual income taxes among Asia, Macau has become a popular destination for foreign investment.

Macau Company Formation Requirements

Macau company formation is a straightforward process with limited requirements. Like many other low tax jurisdictions, a single shareholder and director are the only requirements for company formation in Macau. A corporate entity may take on the role of either the Macau company’s shareholder or director. In addition, the position of a company secretary is optional.

However, company secretaries must be nominated for Macau companies under certain circumstances (e.g., companies with more than 10 shareholders or quota holders, if they issue bonds or if their share capital is above MOP 1 million). 

Lastly, Macau companies must utilize a local registered office address for company formation purposes.

Annual Maintenance

  • All Macau companies must annually submit an Annual Return and financial statements
  • Macau companies are subject to audits if their average income for the last 3 years exceeds MOP 500,000 and its capital exceeds MOP 100,000

FAQs

Do I need to be in Macau to complete the company formation process?


No. It is not necessary to be present in Macau during the company formation process. Shareholders of a Macau company may choose to complete the company registration process through an authorized representative. If a shareholder is unable to travel to Macau to complete signatory processes, they may choose to sign the relevant documents at their residence and mail the documents, together with original copies of identification documents (or certified true copies) to Macau for handling.

What type of properties can I utilize as a local registered office address?


Company formation in Macau requires a commercial office, shops, or residential address. Upon registration, shareholders of the Macau company may change the registered address as necessary. However, it should be noted that Macau Post Office Boxes are not accepted as registered addresses.

If I want to form a company in Macau, do I need Macau shareholders to hold a proportion of my company shares?


No. Macau company law does not specify that a Macau shareholder must hold a certain proportion of shares of a Macau registered company.
