Business registration

What is the deadline for business registration or updating business details in Hong Kong?

The Business Registration Ordinance requires every person who carry out a business in Hong Kong, whether except for sole proprietor, a partnership, to apply for business registration (BR) within one month from the date of commencement of the business.

If the registered particulars of the business have changed, the business operator has to notify the Inland Revenue Department in writing within 1 month of the change. The registered particulars are available for public information at a fee.
