You can submit an online request for increasing or reducing the amount of prepayment at the e-Registry. After login the e-Registry, you may use the [Deposit Services > Adjust Deposit Amount]
function to submit the online request.
For increase of prepayment, you can pay by :
- credit card (VISA/Mastercard/JCB/UnionPay);
- direct internet bank transfer (from the bank accounts of HSBC, Hang Seng Bank and member banks of JETCO);
- digital wallet (Apple Pay/Google Pay) (only applicable to the “CR e-Filing” mobile application);
- PPS Shop&Buy Service;
- autopay instruction; or
- depositing an e-Cheque issued by any bank which offers e-Cheque issuance service through the e-Cheque Bill Payment Service provided by Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited.
Alternatively, you may download a payment advice from the e-Registry and present it together with your payment in person at the Shroff Office of the Companies Registry’s Public Search Centre on the 13th floor of the Queensway Government Offices. Payment by cheque (payable to “Companies Registry”) can also be sent by post to Financial Services Division of the Companies Registry on the 29th floor of the Queensway Government Offices.
For reducing the amount of prepayment, once you have submitted an online request, your available account balance will be adjusted accordingly. The reduced amount will be refunded to you through the channel where you paid the prepayment. Normally it will take about three weeks to effect the refund.
