The answer to your question would be plain and simple NO.
You are a company based in HK and the US firm is just a vendor for you from whom you purchase professional service and you pay for it.
There is no need to file any returns or any such thing as you are not based in the US. Yours is a web shop and your model is correct.

Thanks for your reply.
How about if we ship the goods to our agent in USA and this agent help to ship the goods to individual buyers in USA or Canada. Does that makes any difference? It means that the ownership of the goods still belongs to us when the goods arrive in USA. The ownership only switch to buyers after they places and pay the order. In Europe, we need to register a VAT number there in order to hold the ownership. How about in USA?
