Circular to All Intermediaries, Responsible Officers and Representatives Regarding the Waiver of Annual Licensing Fees

20 Mar 2017



This circular is issued to remind all intermediaries, responsible officers and representatives of the annual licensing fee waiver announced on 24 March 2016 1.

The objective of the Annual Fee Waiver is to relieve licensed corporations, registered institutions, responsible officers and representatives of the obligation to pay the annual licensing fees that would otherwise be payable by them during the period from 1 April 2016 to 31 March 2018. Accordingly, the Commission will not issue a demand for payment for any annual licensing fee that would otherwise become payable up to and including 31 March 2018.

The fees payable in connection with new licence applications and transfers will not be waived.
