Welcome to the website of the Licensed Financial Services Registry, Hong Kong.

Our companies’ Registry, (“the Registry”), administers and enforces most parts of the companies’ ordinance. The Registry registers Hong Kong companies, their statutory returns, de-registers those that are defunct and insolvent whilst ensuring that all companies listed operate legally. The Registry also provides the public with services and facilities for inspecting and obtaining company information kept by the Registry.

We administer and enforce several other ordinances, including the Trustee Ordinance (insofar as it relates to trust companies), the Registered Trustees Incorporation Ordinance and the Limited Partnerships Ordinance. Our registry is also responsible for processing applications relating to money lender licenses and maintaining a register of money lenders for inspection by the public.

Our vision is to achieve world-wide recognition as an excellent companies’ Registry giving the investor community a quality service.

The Companies’ Ordinance, (Chapter 622 of the Laws of Hong Kong), and its subsidiary legislation came into effect on 3 March 2014. The new Companies’ Ordinance provides a modernized legal framework for the incorporation and operation of companies in Hong Kong and reinforces Hong Kong’s position as an international financial and commercial center.

We hope that you will find this website useful and an effective communication channel between you and the Registry. Your comments and suggestions on our services are most welcome and you may send your views to the Registry Services Manager at registration@lfsr-hk.org.
