Hong Kong Company Liquidation Introduction

Hong Kong Company Liquidation can be divided into Voluntary Liquidation by Shareholders or Creditors, and Statutory Liquidation by the Court.

1) Voluntary Liquidation by Shareholders

Voluntary Liquidation by Shareholders shall be conditional on the following:

  • Account book of company is complete
    Consent is obtained from a majority of shareholders through extraordinary resolution passed at meetings of shareholders
  • The company is solvent
  • A liquidator must be appointed to monitor and handle the whole process of liquidation

2) Voluntary Liquidation by Creditors

Voluntary Liquidation by Creditors shall be conditional on the following:

  • Account book of company is complete
  • The company is insolvent and cannot continue operation
  • A liquidator of the company is appointed by creditors to monitor and handle the whole process of liquidation
  • This liquidator must be a certified public accountant or solicitor

3) Statutory Liquidation by Court

Liquidation petitioned by the court is a statutory liquidation. Each of the following: the company itself, its creditors, the Company Registrar or the Official Receiver, can petition for liquidation. After the order of liquidation is issued, the court will delegate a liquidator, and the Official Receiver can also act as temporary liquidator; the whole process will involve more than many meetings of directors, shareholders and creditors.

4) Hong Kong Company Deregistration

Under Section 291 of the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 32) of the Laws of Hong Kong, a company applying for deregistration with Companies Registry must meet the following conditions:

Consent by all shareholders

The company is no longer running or operating business, or was terminated for more than three months from the date of application for deregistration

It must obtains the Written Notice of No Objection issued by the Commissioner of Inland Revenue

In addition, if someone has an objection to this deregistration, he/she can file application for re-registration with the court within 20 years from the effective date of deregistration, when the court shall order the Companies Registry to resume business of the deregistered company.
