Hong Kong Companies Registry (CR) has introduced a New Inspection Regime


24 October 2022


Currently, sensitive personal information includes usual residential addresses and/or full identification numbers of directors, company secretaries and other individuals including liquidators and provisional liquidators of Hong Kong companies (collectively Protected Information) are available for public inspection.

With effect from 24 October 2022 (Phase 2), the Protected Information will be replaced with the following for public inspection:

  • partial identification numbers – only the first half of the sequence would be made available for public inspection.

Only "specified persons", including but not limited to a solicitor or foreign lawyer, or a financial institution or designated non-financial businesses and professions, could apply to the to Hong Kong Companies Registry (CR) for access to Protected Information.
