Conduct a Business Registration Number Search Before Registering Your Hong Kong Company
If you are operating a business in Hong Kong, you will require a Hong Kong business registration number. This guide provides information about the Hong Kong business registration number and Hong Kong business registration number search.
A Hong Kong business registration number (BRN) follows an 8-digit sequence. Each business in Hong Kong must secure one when conducting operations. The Inland Revenue Department (IRD) of Hong Kong issues this number. A company in Hong Kong must have a BRN before a work location can be set up.
Whether your company in Hong Kong-based or not, you must still register your business with the IRD within 1 month of commencing your business.
Your Hong Kong business registration number will be present on your Business Registration Certificate. You may also do a Hong Kong business registration number search. You can find everything about BRN’s on the Hong Kong government’s website under the eTax service section. Members of the public will be able to enquire about company BRNs on the eTax service by inputting the full English or Chinese business name of the company in question and its location.
