How can a company change its name after incorporation?
A company can also change its name even after the incorporation process in Hong Kong. A company has to fill the special resolution to change the name of the company as per section 107(2) of the Companies Ordinance.
After passing the Special Resolution within the 15 days, a “Notice of Change of Company Name” (Form NNC2) must be delivered to the Registrar of Companies with the required fees. The newname of the company will be effective on the issue date of the ‘Certificate of Change of Name’. At the same time, an updated Business Registration Certificate (BRC) with the new company name will be issued by the Inland Revenue Department and sent to the business registration address.
