Deregistration of a Hong Kong Company

There may be many reasons for company deregistration if the company has never commenced business.

If this is your case, and your company hasn’t made any transactions since its incorporation, we can help you with the deregistration process.

As a first step, Startupr team will make sure that your company is in full, up to date compliance with all Companies Registry and Inland Revenue Department requirements:

1) the Hong Kong Limited company has not commenced any business 

2) no outstanding duties – all fees have been paid to CR and IRD

3) all company documents are properly completed (NNC1, NAR1, D2A)

4) no outstanding fees to company Secretary

If all the above requirements are fulfilled Startupr applies for the official company deregistration. 

Either the Company Director or the appointed Company Secretary will request a written notice confirming IRD’s (issued by the Commissioner of IRD) consent to deregister through CR. Once this is officially confirmed, Startupr will apply for actual deregistration at CR.

Bear in mind, that the appropriate Annual Return must still be filed with CR (no more than 42 days after the company’s return date), the business registration fees must be paid and the Company must file the Annual Return at both CR and IRD.

Failure to make any of the filings and payments as legally required places both the company and its officials in breach of the Companies’ Ordinance, subjecting them to substantial penalties and prosecution by the HK government.
