INTERSHORES i TCSP Licensing, CDD & Record Keeping Requirements for DNFBPs

A licensing regime for trust or company service providers (“TCSPs”) in Hong Kong has been commenced with effect from 1 March 2018.  Under the licensing regime, TCSPs are required to apply for a licence from the Registrar of Companies and satisfy a “fit-and-proper” test before they can provide trust or company services as a business in Hong Kong.


In addition, Designated Non-Financial Businesses and Professions (DNFBPs), including solicitors, accountants, real estate agents, and trust or company service providers ("TCSPs"), are required to observe statutory customer due diligence ("CDD") and record-keeping requirements as set out in Schedule 2 to the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorist Financing Ordinance, Cap. 615. 


Make sure you deal with a licensed TCSP to handle your company matters!
