Bookkeeping and Accounting Regulations in Hong Kong

In Hong Kong, accounting and bookkeeping regulations are primarily governed by the Inland Revenue Ordinance (IRO), the Companies Ordinance, and the Financial Reporting Standards (FRS) issued by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA). Here are some key regulations and requirements:

Financial Reporting Standards (FRS)

 

The HKICPA issues FRS to establish accounting standards and guidelines for financial reporting in Hong Kong. Companies incorporated in Hong Kong are required to prepare their financial statements in accordance with these standards, which are based on International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

Companies Ordinance


The Companies Ordinance sets out the requirements for maintaining accounting records by companies registered in Hong Kong. Companies are required to maintain proper books of account, including records of all financial transactions, assets, liabilities, and revenue. These records must be kept at the company's registered office or another place approved by the directors.

Inland Revenue Ordinance (IRO)


The IRO governs taxation in Hong Kong and sets out the requirements for tax reporting and compliance. Companies are required to maintain accurate accounting records to support their tax filings, including records of income, expenses, assets, and liabilities. Tax returns must be filed annually with the Inland Revenue Department (IRD), and companies may be subject to tax audits to verify the accuracy of their financial records.

Auditing Requirements

Companies incorporated in Hong Kong are generally required to appoint auditors to conduct annual audits of their financial statements. The Companies Ordinance specifies the criteria for auditor eligibility and the scope of audit procedures to be performed. Audited financial statements must be submitted to shareholders and filed with the Companies Registry.

 

Penalties for Non-Compliance

Failure to comply with accounting and bookkeeping regulations in Hong Kong can result in penalties, fines, or other enforcement actions by regulatory authorities. Companies that fail to maintain proper accounting records, prepare accurate financial statements, or comply with tax reporting requirements may face legal consequences and reputational damage.

It's important for businesses operating in Hong Kong to stay informed of accounting and bookkeeping regulations and ensure compliance with all relevant requirements.
