Hong Kong Updates- Display of Company Names

The new Companies Ordinance has relaxed the rules on the display of names at companies' places of business, including a specific relaxation with respect to corporate services providers such as Primasia Corporate Services Limited. Where 6 or more companies have their registered office at a single location, rotating electronic display of the companies' names is now permissible.

A further, rather strange, clarification has been given to the effect that a company with a bi-lingual name may display either the English or the Chinese name. Although the Companies Registry says that it has taken legal advice to arrive at this position, it had previously been the accepted position that a bilingual name was regarded as a single indivisible name, at least for name registration purposes.
