Important Notes:

  • If payment is made by cheque, the cheque should be crossed and issued in Hong Kong Dollars payable to "Companies Registry".

  • Documents involving fees must be delivered with the correct fees to the Companies Registry.

  • A document will not be regarded as having been delivered to the Registrar of Companies (“the Registrar”) in satisfaction of the filing requirements of the Companies Ordinance if the document has not been received by the Registrar or is not accompanied by the correct fee.

  • An annual return with insufficient fee is not acceptable and will be returned to the presentor. The amount of fee payable will be calculated according to the date of redelivery of the annual return. Higher registration fee will be payable for late delivery of the annual return.

  • For annual returns delivered by post, the post mark date will be regarded as the delivery date for calculating the amount of fee payable. You are advised to post your annual return with sufficient postage and correct fee as early as possible within the prescribed 42-day statutory period to avoid any delay.
