  The following documents and materials needed to be prepared by the application before submitting an application for registration:
  (1) A set of registration documents of the Hong Kong company, including the Certificate of Incorporation, Business Registration Certificate and latest Annual Return;
  (2) A copy of passport copy and address proof in respect of each director of the Taiwan company;
  (3) The Chinese name of the proposed Taiwan company;
  (4) The amount of capital/investment of the proposed Taiwan company;
  (5) A brief description of the principal business activities of the Taiwan company.

6. Important Note
 

The Company Law in Taiwan does not impose a minimum amount of registered capital for the purpose of company registration. However, the investor is still required to state a particular amount of registered capital in the Article of Association of the Taiwan company and the said amount should be remitted to Taiwan at the time of company registration. In this connection, we suggest that the amount to be stated in the Article of Association should be sufficient to fund the operation of the Taiwan company for the first six months after incorporation.
