For a local private company, an annual registration fee of HK$105 is payable if the annual return is delivered within 42 days after the most recent anniversary of the date of incorporation of the company.Notes:
- A substantially higher registration fee ranging from HK$870 to HK$3,480 will be payable for the late delivery of an annual return of a local private company.
- The Registrar of Companies does not have power to waive the higher registration fees prescribed in the Companies (Fees) Regulation (Cap. 622K).
- Nevertheless, pursuant to the Companies (Fees) (Amendment) Regulation 2020 which came into operation on 1 October 2020, the registration fees for annual returns delivered to the Companies Registry on time and within the concession period from 1 October 2020 to 30 September 2022 (both dates inclusive) has been waived for two years. In cases of late delivery of annual returns, waiver of fees is not applicable and companies are still required to pay the statutory higher registration fees calculated based on the date of delivery, even though the late annual returns are delivered within the concession period.
