Origin of the Significant Controller Register 「重要控制人登記冊」的緣起

The Government will publish in the Gazette the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing (Financial Institutions) (Amendment) Ordinance 2018 and the Companies (Amendment) Ordinance 2018, in an effort to enhance Hong Kong's regulatory regime for combating money laundering and terrorist financing. The Amendment Ordinances were enacted by the Legislative Council on January 24, 2018 and will commence operation on March 1, 2018.

To enhance transparency of corporate beneficial ownership in order to fulfill Hong Kong’s international obligations, the Amendment Ordinance introduces new requirements on the keeping of Significant Controllers Registers by companies. It requires a company incorporated in Hong Kong to obtain and maintain up-to-date beneficial ownership information, by way of keeping a Significant Controllers Register (“SCR”), for inspection by law enforcement officers upon demand.

政府將在憲報刊登《2018年打擊洗錢及恐怖分子資金籌集(金融機構)(修訂)條例》及《2018年公司(修訂)條例》,以加強香港打擊洗錢及恐怖分子資金籌集的監管制度。 有關修訂條例於二零一八年一月二十四日獲立法會通過,並將於二零一八年三月一日起生效。

為了提升法團實益擁有權的透明度,以履行香港的國際責任,該條例訂定公司須備存「重要控制人登記冊」的新規定。在香港成立為法團的公司須取得和保存實益擁有權的最新資料,以備存「重要控制人登記冊」,供執法 人員查閱。
