The e-Registry is a 24-hour portal developed by the Companies Registry to facilitate electronic submission, anytime and anywhere, of applications for incorporation of local companies, applications for registration of non-Hong Kong companies, specified forms and related documents under the Companies Ordinance (Chapter 622 of the Laws of Hong Kong) and the Companies (Winding Up and Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance (Chapter 32 of the Laws of Hong Kong) to the Registrar of Companies for registration.

To provide our customers with a convenient and integrated service, the e-Registry also serves as a one-stop platform for company and business registration whereby any online application for incorporation of a local company or application for registration of a non-Hong Kong company will be deemed to be an application for business registration simultaneously. Moreover, upon submission of a Notice of Change of Address of Registered Office (e-Form NR1), an optional electronic one-stop notification service is also available for a local company to report the change of registered office address also as a change of business address to the Inland Revenue Department.

Registered users can submit specified forms and documents individually or in bulk through the e-Registry. Companies can also deliver amended documents for rectifying the typographical or clerical errors contained in documents already registered with the Companies Registry.

To facilitate electronic filing at the e-Registry, the following services are also provided:

 

Annual Return e-Reminder Service - This service is free of charge. Electronic notifications for delivering annual returns will be sent by the system to the message boxes and registered email addresses of Users of the e-Registry. Users can readily access the e-Registry through a hyperlink provided in the notifications for electronic submission of Annual Returns (e-Forms NAR1 or NN3).

 

Third Party Software Interface ("TPSI") Service - Registered users can use the TPSI Service to submit their duly completed and signed electronic files of specified forms which are generated by third party software (i.e. software which is developed in-house or purchased from software vendor), in specified interface file formats with or without attachments, to the Companies Registry.

 

Registration of Registered Agent Service - Company Users (except Business Registration Company Users) and Individual Users of the e-Registry may appoint their agents free of charge at the e-Registry for the purpose of delivering commonly filed specified forms (other than applications for incorporation of local companies and registration of non-Hong Kong companies) in electronic form. An agent can be a company or an individual. Any agent, who has registered the Registered Agent status and has already been authorised and appointed by the principal at the e-Registry, can act on behalf of his/her principal for the purpose of electronic filing at the e-Registry.

 

You can also subscribe to our e-Monitor service at the e-Registry to help you keep an eye on the updating of company information on the Companies Register. As soon as a document is registered in the public records of a company specified by a subscriber, an electronic notification will be sent instantly to the subscriber.
