Audit Service for SMEs

Why do Hong Kong limited companies need audit?

From a legal perspective: According to Chapter 622 of the Companies Ordinance, Hong Kong limited companies are required to engage a practicing accountant to conduct an annual audit and submit the audited report, signed by the practicing accountant, to the Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department.

From a company's operational perspective: The purpose of audit and accounting is to assess the reliability of a company's financial condition, financial records, and financial-related information, culminating in the issuance of an audit report. The audit report serves not only for tax computation by the Inland Revenue Department but also as a validation of the legitimacy of the company's commercial activities.
