Hong Kong Crowdfunding Software

Hong Kong crowdfunding
Currently Hong Kong crowdfunding is not specifically regulated by a single overarching law in Hong Kong, according to the Securities and Futures Commission. However, this does not mean that crowd funding is unregulated; a variety of different laws may kick in, depending on the nature of the crowd funding. In particular, crowd-funding activities may be subject to the requirements of the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Cap. 571) (SFO) or the Companies (Winding Up and Miscellaneous Provisions) Ordinance (Cap. 32). In summary, those engaged in crowd-funding activities may find themselves subject to the following restrictions or requirements (unless an exemption applies):

Restrictions on the issuance of an advertisement, invitation or document that knowingly invites the public to acquire securities or participate in collective investment schemes;

Prospectus registration requirements in relation to the public offering of shares or debentures of a company;
The crowd-funding operator may need to be licensed under the SFO if it carries out any regulated activities, e.g., dealing in securities, advising on securities, providing automated trading services, etc., which will also give rise to other SFC requirements set out in applicable codes or guidelines; and

Requirements in relation to automated trading services and recognised exchange companies, depending on the nature of the Hong Kong crowdfunding platform. Breach of any legal or regulatory requirements, including those set out above, may result in criminal and civil liability.
