We can restore your Hong Kong company if struck off the Hong Kong Companies Register.
Struck off companies are restored automatically on payment of all outstanding licence fees, penalties and the government company restoration fee.
Once your Hong Kong company is restored to the register it is deemed never to have been struck off and deemed to be in continued existence.
A company dissolved by striking off by the Registrar of Companies may apply for restoration by administrative restoration or by court order.

Administrative Restoration Procedure was introduced by the new Company Ordinance (Cap. 622). It is a procedure where a company that has been dissolved by Hong Kong Registrar of Companies is restored to the register.. Restoration is used where the company has been struck off for failure to file annual returns with the Companies Registry.
A dissolved company can apply for administrative restoration, a dissolved local company must make an application within 20 years of the date of dissolution.
The director or shareholder of the company can apply to the Registrar of Companies for administrative restoration of the dissolved company, the applicant must bring up to date records of the company to update the records held by the Registrar of Companies.
(1) All outstanding Annual Returns (Form NAR1) with certified true copies of financial statements, together with payment of the annual registration fees
(2) A “Notice of Change of Address of Registered Office” (Form NR1) if there had been any change of registered office address before or after the dissolution of the company
(3) A “Notice of Change of Company Secretary and Director” (Form ND2A) and / or A “Notice of Change in Particulars of Company Secretary and Director” (Form ND2B), if there had been any change relating to company secretary and / or director(s) before or after the dissolution of the company

The Registrar of Companies may strike the name of a company off the Register under the Companies Ordinance where the Registrar has reasonable cause to believe that the company is not in operation or carrying on business.
Once the company has been struck off, neither the company nor any directors or shareholders may carry on any business or in any way deal with the assets or affairs of the company.
Once after the company is restored, it is required to have a Registered Office and Company Secretary. We can provide the registered office and company secretary service. Our restoration service fees do not cover these two items of services.
An HK company can only be restored by the registered agent on record, or the agent can be transferred, which we can organise.
