The Company Registry provides a memorandum of procedure for applying to Registrar of Companies for a Licence under Section 21 of the Companies Ordinance (Cap.32) for a limited company for the purpose of promoting commerce, art, science, religion, charity, or any other useful object.

We can set up a charity or not-for-profit organization for you, perform the statutory audit and do the compliance for you. We also perform audit for other non-profit making organizations. We are a firm of certified public accountants. Please contact our Ms. Judy Mo at judy@kkchan-cpa.com.hk for details.

We have registered a non-profit making association to manage sport activities for youngsters in Hong Kong. We are going to do charity in future. We want to change the registration as a charity organization. What are the conditions and procedures?

My colleague and I are also undertaking similar venture to what you have done and her trying to find a good accountant who will help us with the company formation and auditing.  If you you could perhaps point us in the right direction we would greatly appreciate it.  bundaegi@mail.com

Subject to certain limitations, charitable institutions or trusts of a public character are exempt from tax under section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance. Charities wishing to enjoy the tax exemption may apply to the Inland Revenue Department.

Generally speaking, for an institution or a trust to be a charity, it must be established for purposes which are exclusively charitable according to law. The law defining the legal attributes of a charity is based upon case law developed through court decisions.
