Speaker(s)Ms YT Soon FCG HKFCG(PE)
Company secretaries are playing an increasingly pivotal role in corporate governance, no matter in public companies, private companies or non-governmental organisations in Hong Kong. Their role has evolved from overseeing the compliance and administrative functions of a company to taking on the additional tasks of a governance advisor to the management in their deliberative process. This level of responsibility calls for a thorough knowledge of the business of an organisation and of the rules and regulations governing its activities as well as a solid foundation in various areas of company secretarial practice.
To support students, graduates and members working in the company secretarial field and would-be entrants in their professional development, the Institute is pleased to offer a Foundation Training Series in Company Secretarial Practice (from February to October 2022). This Series, to be delivered by Ms YT Soon FCG FCS(PE) as the main speaker in 6 online sessions, will provide an introduction to the compliance issues in 6 specified areas of Hong Kong private limited companies.
In Session 3 - Statutory Records of Hong Kong Private Limited Companies, the following elements will be covered:
- Requirements of the Companies Ordinance on keeping registers and company records (“Statutory Records”), including:
- Register of Directors
- Register of Company Secretaries
- Register of Members
- Register of Significant Controllers

- Register of particulars referred to in s. 384
- Minutes/resolutions of directors & members
