Bookkeeping and Accounting Services in Hong Kong

The provisions set out in the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance require all Hong Kong incorporated and registered entities, like every Hong kong Limited Company to maintain proper records and books of accounts and to comply with statutory audit requirements on an annual basis. Hong Kong has adopted a Financial Reporting Standards framework (HKFRS) based on the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

In order to accommodate private companies and small and medium sized entities the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants (HKICPA) further issued Financial Reporting Standard for Private Entities (HKFRS-PE) and qualifying SMEs (SME-FRS) removing topics and disclosure requirements that are not generally relevant to private entities, and simplifying requirements for recognition and measurement.
