    Accounting and audit

    We ensure 100% compliance with the legislation of Hong Kong in the field of accounting and reporting. You focus on growing your business and conquering new markets.

    Preparation of annual financial statements and its subsequent audit is a mandatory requirement for companies in Hong Kong. This factor significantly increases the reputation of Hong Kong in the eyes of banks, investors, partners and international organizations. Accounting is carried out in accordance with the concept of International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), called the Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards Framework (HKFRS).

    A company registered in Hong Kong is required to prepare and conduct an audit of its financial statements on an annual basis.  The financial report of the company in Hong Kong is a report which helps to evaluate the financial position of the company and its profit (loss) for the financial year. It consists of 3 sections:

    • Balance Sheet, which shows the company’s assets, liabilities, and capital for the reporting period.
    • Income statement, which shows the company’s profits, expenses, losses and earnings. Shows the company’s net profit after expenses for the reporting period.
    • Cash flow statement, which shows cash flow and how it is used.

    Once a company’s financial report in Hong Kong is prepared, a certified public accountant conducts an audit of the financial statements, the purpose of which is to confirm the accuracy of the financial statements. After that, the audited financial statements are submitted to the Inland Revenue Department of Hong Kong as a compulsory supplement to the Income Tax Declaration. If the source of profit of the company was outside Hong Kong, a special application for income tax exemption in Hong Kong is also attached.
