We noticed that many company owners may neglect the importance of listing the company name in the company directory, which is one of the charters in the Company Ordinance. Therefore, we will introduce the related Company Ordinance and explain why it is significant to show your company name in the company directory.
According to “Company Regulation (Cap.622, sections 659 and 660, 3(1-3) which is published in 2014 by HK Government. A company must display continuously its registered name in its registered office and every business venue of the company. The registered name must be so positioned that it may be easily seen by any visitor to the office or business venue. If the registered or business venue of more than 6 companies, the company name could be displayed through an electronic device.
The company Registry will inspect the company directory without any notification. No matter Company owners are using physical or virtual office as their registered business address, they have the responsibility to comply with the Company Ordinance.
