Frequently Answered Questions

Statutory audit reports are examinations of a company’s financial reports, conducted by an independent party to comply with the disclosure requirements set out in the Hong Kong Company Ordinance and tax obligations outlined in the Inland Revenue Ordinance.

Under this Ordinance, all Hong Kong incorporated companies are statutorily required to audit their financial reports every year. Financial reports will include a balance sheet, an income statement, a statement of changes in equity, and a cash flow statement.

All Hong Kong incorporated companies are statutorily required by the Companies Ordinance to audit their financial statements every year.

These financial statements are essentially accounting documents prepared by a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) on behalf of a business, to provide financial accountability to the company’s stakeholders. For private companies, financial statements are not required to be filed on public records.

For corporate entities, financial statements are required and must be prepared, to comply with the disclosure requirements set out in the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance, Hong Kong’s Financial Reporting Standards, and the Rules of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited for listed companies.

In Hong Kong, only a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) is qualified to conduct an audit.

Hong Kong audit process passes along different stakeholders as follow:

  • Prepares the financial accounts along with the supporting documents for the CPA’s further handling.
  • Reviews and understands the activities and the nature of the company.
  • Identifies and evaluates significant transactions in the financial statement.
  • Tests the financial statements and spots uncertainties and errors.
  • Reviews the financial statements and its supporting documents.
  • Makes an opinion report to reflect the accuracy and fair representation of the financial statements.
  • Makes a report from the audit and opinion on the financial statements.
Directors of the company
  • Signs the audit report and the supporting documents.
  • Receives the signed audit report and creates the tax computation form and sends it back to the IRD along with the Profits Tax Return.

The content and depth of the audit documents depend on the identified risks of material misstatement, the judgment required in performing the audit, and the significance of the audit evidence obtained by the auditor.

For the CPA to perform a proper audit, correct management accounts are needed. To prepare for your audit, it is best practice to have a list of required documents prepared.

  • Audited financial statements of subsidiary companies
  • Copy of the original Profit Tax Return received from the IRD
  • All applicable financial statements for the assessed period
  • All sales/service agreements, employment contracts, tenancy agreements for the assessed period
  • All purchase invoices for the assessed period
  • Receipt for all expenses for the assessed period
  • Bank statements (The auditor might ask you to sign a confirmation form which will be sent to the bank to obtain the bank balance)
  • All sales invoices with the corresponding receipt for the assessed period
  • Copy of any special licenses, such as an SFC License or Property Agent License (if any)
  • Copy of the company’s registration documents: Updated business registration certificate, Incorporation certificate, Articles of association and Annual Return

The purpose of conducting a statutory audit report in Hong Kong is to obtain a true and accurate representation of the financial statements of a company, without any internal bias. In Hong Kong, the financial statements, profits, and taxes payable to the government are usually verified and audited by a third party.

As the financial statements and tax returns of a company must be compiled without bias, companies cannot conduct the audit themselves. Audits must be completed by a neutral third party.

However, accounting can be done internally. Typically, a company can use their internal staff or professional accounting firm to conduct bookkeeping activities. If an audit is conducted, auditors will rely on the internal records kept by a company’s accounting staff.
