When will Unique Business Identifier (“UBI”) be implemented for companies/ entities?

Companies Registry

The Companies Registry undertakes to implement UBI in two phases for entities under the administration of the Registrar of Companies:

Phase One
The first phase was implemented for Limited Partnership Funds (“LPFs”) with effect from 1 November 2021.

Phase Two
The second phase was implemented simultaneously with the launch of the Companies Registry’s revamped Integrated Companies Registry Information System on 27 December 2023, and extended to cover other types of entities as follows:

  • companies incorporated or registered under the Companies Ordinance (Chapter 622);
  • open-ended fund companies incorporated or registered under Part IVA of the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Chapter 571);
  • limited partnerships registered under the Limited Partnerships Ordinance (Chapter 37);
  • registered trustees corporations incorporated under the Registered Trustees Incorporation Ordinance (Chapter 306); and
  • other entities formed or registered under various Ordinances administered by the Registrar of Companies.
