Hong Kong companies are required to prepare financial statements for each financial year that comply with the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance. The financial statements must be audited by Hong Kong Certified Public Accountant (Practising).

In addition, the Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department requires the company to complete the audited financial statements for tax purposes while submitting a Profits Tax Return.

Besides, the audited financial statements can also be used for banking facilities arrangements and Government grants or allowance applications, etc.


Apart from the annual statutory audit, a company may arrange assurance for special projects, such as:

  • Investigation of management misconduct;
  • Sale of businesses and related valuation;
  • Merger & acquisition or listing; and
  • Reporting on operation efficiency and management performance, etc.
