Document Submission

The detail of this page

Electronic services for submission of applications for incorporation of local companies, applications for registration of non-Hong Kong companies, specified forms and other documents under the Companies Ordinance and the Companies (Winding Up and Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance (Cap. 32) are available at the e-Filing Services of the e-Services Portal.  Web forms will be provided for completion online and the “drafts” can be saved at the e-Services Portal for subsequent review and update before submission.

To provide our customers with a convenient and integrated service, the e-Services Portal 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.

The e-Filing functions for making applications for incorporation of local companies and registration of non-Hong Kong companies will be provided on a dedicated page for easy access by frequent users. Users may save the completed electronic incorporation form at the e-Services Portal as a template for subsequent submissions of similar applications for incorporations in future.  

Registered users can submit documents individually or in bulk online through the e-Services Portal.
