FAQ

  • What does an Accountant do?

    An accountant plays an important role as the financial backbone of any business, large or small. They prepare and examine financial records, and make sure that transactions are accurate and up-to-date. Accountants use report data for analyzing the revenue and expenses as well as forecasting and budgeting for the following year, which could be referenced for the company's owner's decisions.Their duties include but are not limited to:

    • Preparing employer's returns and tax returns
    • Monitoring accounts receivable, accounts payable and budgets
    • Auditing and analyzing financial performance
    • Financial forecasting and risk analysis
    • Advising on how to improve the company's performance based on its portfolio
    • Compiling and presenting financial and budget reports
    • Ensuring that financial statements and records comply with laws and regulations
    • Keeping account books and systems up to date
  • How to find an accountant for my business?

    Corporations and companies in Hong Kong are required to appoint accountants within the first few months of incorporation. In doing so, they must certify that the accountant is:

    1. A natural person
    2. A resident of Hong Kong
    3. Has a work permit for Hong Kong
    4. Suitably qualified and holds relevant certifications and experience
    5. Not appointed as the sole director of the corporation

    Often, businesses use professional accounting firms for their accounting and financial reporting services. With Osome a team of accountants is assigned to your company based on the specific business needs.

  • How much does an Accountant charge small businesses?

    The cost of hiring accountants in Hong Kong can vary, especially for small businesses. Packages typically include general bookkeeping, bank reconciliation, producing company financial statements and quarterly reviews, and reporting. However, for companies looking for specialist services such as management accounting consultation, tax-saving strategies, and taxation for international transactions, these services will cost considerably more. Osome covers all of these accounting services in one low monthly fee, so you never have to worry about paying extra if your business needs to change from one month to the next.

  • Why do I need an accountant?

    The primary role of an accountant is to examine the financial position of the business.. In doing so, the accountant is responsible for ensuring that the financial statements are accurate. Another key task is ensuring that the business accounts adhere to the laws and regulations laid out by the Company Registry (or CR). Additionally, accountants must ensure that the financial accounts comply with HKFRS (Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards). The role of accountants also extends to assisting the business with taxation guidance and reporting, to minimise the possibility of any negative implications caused by financial non-compliance.
