Dear members of HKIoD

Happy Chinese New Year!

New requirements for keeping Significant Controllers Register under the Companies (Amendment) Ordinance 2018 (“Amendment Ordinance”)

Please note that under the Amendment Ordinance that will come into operation on 1 March 2018, a Significant Controllers Register (“SCR”) has to be in place in March 2018 for companies incorporated in Hong Kong.

It will be an offence if a company fails to comply with the requirements of the Amendment Ordinance.

You may refer to the "Guideline on the Keeping of Significant Controllers Register", which is downloadable from the Companies Registry's website (www.cr.gov.hk), where there are more details for your inquiry and information.

With best regards
The Hong Kong Institute of Directors
