    • Registrar must rectify information on Companies Register on order of court under section 42, see Re Dalny Estates Ltd [2018], Re Cheer Holdings Ltd [2018] and Re Honour Island Development Ltd [2018].
    • Articles cannot be rectified or supplemented by implied terms, but action commenced without authority can be ratified, with relation back effect, see section 86 and Yifung Developments Ltd v Liu Chi Keung Ricky [2017].
    • Powers of court on hearing of petition-adjournment of petition pending determination of stay of judgment debt in section 180, see Re HK Zexin Resources Ltd [2018]
    • The court adopted a new approach to debt subject to arbitration, see Lasmus Ltd v Southwest Pacific Bauxite (HK) Ltd [2018].
    • Disclosure of third party funder, see Enrich Future Ltd v Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu [2016] and Re Hellas Telecommunications (Luxembourg) [2017].
    • Limitation of action for dividend: depends on whether share certificate under seal, see Yeung Tak Wai v G & G Trading Ltd [2018].
    • Cross-border insolvency issues such as foreign members’ voluntary winding up is recognised by the Hong Kong court, see Re Supreme Tycoon Ltd [2018].
  • A useful source for comment on the provisions of the new CO and for relevant Hong Kong cases.
