 Compliancy Requirements:


The Secretary of a Hong Kong registered company receives a Notification for the submission of the company’s Income Tax Form about 27 months (2 years + 3 months) from the Incorporation date of the company. Once the Notification is received, the company has 1 month to prepare its bookkeeping, audit the accounts and submit the Income Tax Form. It is recommended that all Hong Kong registered companies prepare their audited accounts within 3 months from the end of their financial year, every year.


The submission of a company’s Income Tax Form is a compulsory requirement by HK’s Inland Revenue Authorities and if the audited accounts together with the tax form are not submitted on time, the company has to pay penalties and receives a court summon.
