You can enjoy a seamless company incorporation and business registration with the Hong Kong Companies Registry (CR).

Any application for company incorporation will include a simultaneous application for business registration. 

How to Apply
There are three ways to submit you application – either online via the 24-hour portal e-Registry, via the “CR eFiling” mobile application which can be downloaded free of charge from App Store or Google Play, or by delivering the documents in hard copy to the CR with the correct fees.

Required documents: 

  • Incorporation Form (Form NNC1 for company limited by shares)
  • A copy of the company’s Articles of Association
  • A Notice to Business Registration Office (IRBR1)

The fees for incorporating a company limited by shares are:

  • Company Registration fee – HK$1,720 (If unsuccessful, an application for a refund of HK$1,425 may be made)
  • Business registration fee – HK$2,000 for a one-year certificate; HK$5,200 for a three-year certificate
  • Levy to the Protection of Wages on Insolvency Fund – HK$250 for a one-year certificate; HK$750 for a three-year certificate

Online applications for company incorporation and business registration are normally processed within one hour. Hard copy applications will typically see the Certificate of Incorporation and Business Registration Certificate issued within four working days.
