Obligations of a Company

A company is a separate legal entity, that is, it is a legal person in its own right and separate from its owners. The benefit of limited liability through operating as a limited company also brings with it obligations in so much as the company must comply with the various provisions in the Companies Ordinance (Chapter 622 of the Laws of Hong Kong). These obligations include the timely disclosure and reporting of specified information about the company, its officers and shareholders, etc. and any changes in such information to the Registrar of Companies so that members of the public can have ready access to the latest information of the company kept by the Registrar of Companies.

 

Obligations as Officers of a Company

Every officer of a company, including its director(s), company secretary or manager, has the responsibility to ensure that the company has complied with all the provisions of the Companies Ordinance. If a company fails to comply with the requirements of the Ordinance, the company and every responsible person of the company shall be liable to prosecution and, if convicted, default fines.

In particular, any person appointed to act as a first director of a company must either signify his agreement by signing his/her Consent to Act as Director on the incorporation form, or by confirming the consent in a Form NNC3. The Form NNC3 should be delivered to the Registrar of Companies not later than 15 days after the date of incorporation of the company, failing which the company, every responsible person (including an officer) of the company, and the founder member who signs the incorporation form, commit an offence and each is liable to a fine and, for a continuing offence, to a further daily default fine.

 

Annual Return of a Local Private Company

 You should deliver in respect of every year an annual return in the specified form (Form NAR1) for registration. The annual return contains the particulars of the company such as the address of the registered office, shareholders, directors, company secretary, etc. as at the made up date of the return.

A local private company must in respect of every year deliver its annual return to the Registrar of Companies for registration within 42 days after the anniversary of the date of the company's incorporation in that year (the prescribed time period).

 

Other Filing Requirements

In addition to the delivery of Annual Returns for registration, registered companies are required to deliver other statutory documents to the Registrar of Companies for registration in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Ordinance such as notices of change of address of registered office or principal place of business in Hong Kong, directors and company secretaries and their particulars, etc. Companies and their directors, company secretaries, authorized representatives or managers must ensure strict compliance with the Companies Ordinance in the delivery of statutory returns to the Companies Registry for registration.
