Expiry of the Revenue (Reduction of Business Registration Fees) Order 2013
The Revenue (Reduction of Business Registration Fees) Order 2013, which reduces the prescribed business registration fee by a sum of $2,000 at present, will expire on 1 April 2014. Please refer to the website of the Inland Revenue Department and the business registration fee & levy table for details.
With effect from 1 April 2014, all applications for incorporation of local companies and applications for registration of non-Hong Kong companies delivered to the Companies Registry using the One-stop Company and Business Registration Service must be accompanied by the correct business registration fee and levy.
The Registry anticipates that there will be an upsurge of incorporation applications in the last two weeks of March 2014. We will redeploy resources to maintain a quality service as far as practicable. However, it is possible that we may not be able to meet the performance pledges for our services at times of huge influx of incorporation applications. Please refer to the suggested measures for delivery of applications and documents to the Registry.
