Advising a newly-established e-commerce platform on its organizational structure, terms and conditions for its services and compliance with regulatory requirements regarding sale and transportation of various goods.
When our client first approached us, they were planning to launch their newly set-up e-commerce platform which aims to provide convenient and economic access to overseas foods and beverages for Hong Kong consumers. They had particular concerns about the licences required for importation of various goods and the relevant tax implication. They also wanted to protect themselves from potential liabilities to consumer claims. We provided advice on the regulatory requirements regarding sale and transportation of various goods as well as terms and conditions for its services. We have built a long-term and close cooperation relationship with our client and have been providing continuous legal advice during the operation of their business.
