Business is flexible and mobility. You may consider changing to another location to save the cost or find a new place to develop your business. No matter which location you chose, do not forget to update your registered address. According to the Companies Registry, the company director has to inform relevant authorities when you changed the company registered address within 15 working days.
What is the difference between Registered Office Address & Business Address?
When you open a company in Hong Kong, you may ask why I need to register two addresses. To make it simple. The registered office address is managed by Companies Registry. The purpose of this address is to act as an official address and your company’s contact location to ensure that you could receive government letters. You do not need to register the location where your business is operated. HK Government usually requires you to provide the registered office address during the procedure of company formation. After your company is incorporated, your registered office will be shown on the Business Registration Certificate (BR).
The business address is managed by IRD (Inland Revenue Department). It can or cannot be the same address as your registered office based on your business’s needs. People who are operating the business in the retail industry, they are common to have multiple business addresses. You could print out the business address on your name card, website etc… for communication usage.
How To Change the Both Address?
Your company have to report to government departments when you decided to change the address. For the registered address, you could submit the “Form – NR1” via the online application “E-Registry” Once you submitted the documents, the Companies Registry will issue an updated BR with the new address to your company.
If you decided to change the operating location in order to show the BR in your working place. If You have to submit the “Form IRC 3111A” and the address proof such as rental contract or agreement for the application submitting.
