Accounting

All businesses and companies in Hong Kong are required to do bookkeeping and audit these accounts. HKWJ is here to assist you in this area.

Although accounting requirements in Hong Kong seem to be quite burdensome (compared to some other jurisdictions where such requirements do not exist or where exemptions apply), for purposes of creating tax substance, it is quite an advantage to have these management and audit accounts in place.

Having organised accounts in place help to have a good understanding of your company’s financial performance.

FAQ

Some of the cloud accounting advantages are:

Easy invoicing: Fast moving businesses need fast tools to create and send invoices, receive payment updates and have an instant pending invoices report in place.

Mobile & remote: As businesses go global, remote immediate access to your accounts, check balances, uploaded receipts and invoices sent out to customers is necessary. You will be able to do so even from your smartphone or tablet anywhere at anytime.

Multi-currency consolidation: With cloud bookkeeping you will easily be able to reconcile foreign currency accounts and see exchange rates updated on hourly basis.

You need to consider that using a cloud bookkeeping system also may have disadvantages such as that clients have access to the system and mistakes may occur when client accidently input or changed entries without notifying us.

Additionally, poor internet access may slow down the accounting process and  security breaches in the cloud server as well as server breakdown may occur, so additional security measures, stable internet connection, and backup measures will need to be implemented. 

Finally, some cloud accounting solutions may limit your ability to work with foreign currency in terms of input and invoicing or may request extra fees related to the platform.

As an incorporated company in Hong Kong, you need to comply with the Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards (HKFRS) when preparing financial statements to record your transactions. Not only is this important for keeping accurate and updated accounting records, but also for proper profits tax filing to the Inland Revenue Department (IRD).

Your company’s annual financial statements must be audited by a Hong Kong-licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and submitted to the IRD, together with the Profits Tax Returns.

Every Hong Kong incorporated company in general needs to file an annual Profit Tax Return and tax computation for each respective year of doing business. The tax calculation will show the amount of tax your company has to pay after deducting all applicable expenses and applying exemptions, depreciation allowances and incentives.

We charge our clients a service fee a fixed fee per month, which depends on factor such as the number of transactions that have been processed through the accounts, business complexity and turnover.

Proper accounting is complicated, time-consuming and requires (up-to-date) knowledge. Therefore, many SMEs and start-ups choose to outsource their company’s accounting functions.
