To counter the challenging external and local economic environment, the Financial Secretary announced on 15 August 2019 a package of measures to support enterprises, especially small and medium enterprises, to safeguard jobs and relieve people's financial burden.
The registration-related fees for minor works contractors under the Building (Minor Works) (Fees) Regulation will be waived or reduced during the concession period from 21 October 2019 to 20 October 2020 (both days inclusive). Details refer to the Payment of Fees for Registration of Registered Minor Works Contractors.
Refund of Registration Fees
For other current RMWC whose registers are valid throughout the concession period and have not renewed/ restored their registrations during the concession period, a 1-year registration fee ranged from $35 - $435, depending on the type of registration, will be refunded.
