Company Secretary

According to the Companies Ordinance, Chapter 622 of the Laws of Hong Kong, every limited company in Hong Kong requires a statutory company secretary, and the company secretary cannot be the sole director of the company.

The role of company secretary

The company secretary must be a natural person who ordinarily reside in Hong Kong or a body corporate which its registered office or place of business is located in Hong Kong.

Section 475(2) of the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622) expressly prohibits the sole director from acting as the company secretary. Besides, section 475(3) of the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622) provides that no private company having only one director may have a body corporate as its company secretary if the sole director of that body corporate is also the sole director of the private company.

a person resident in Hong Kong, a Hong Kong licensed accounting professional, a Hong Kong licensed legal professional or a trust or company service provider licensee.

Duties of company secretary

The company secretary is an important position in a limited company. The person in charge must be familiar with the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance and assist in handling the company’s statutory affairs. He must also fill in his correspondence address in Hong Kong (non-Hong Kong addresses or post office box numbers are not accepted). Ensure that the Hong Kong Companies Registry can contact the company secretary at any time.
