Reduction of Fee on Application for Registration and Renewal of Registration between January 2020 and December 2020

ARB Circular: 15 / 2019

11 December 2019

Dear Registered Architects,

Reduction of Fee on Application for Registration and Renewal of Registration
Between January 2020 and December 2020

Over the past few months, local social unrest has hit the local economy hard. The buildings and construction industry has suffered a heavy blow and would still be very much hard-hit and facing a lot of uncertainties.

To counter the increasingly challenging economic environment, and to recuperate support for the architectural profession, the ARB has decided to adopt a one-off reduction on the fee of application for registration and renewal starting 1 January 2020 for Registered Architects (“RAs”) with registration expiring in 2020.

Please see the following new fee structure:

Current Fee up to 31 December 2019
Starting 1 January 2020
For RAs whose registration (br /> expiring on
31 March 2020, 30 June 2020
30 September 2020, 31 December 2020
Application for Registration
Application for Renewal of Registration
Fee for Extension of Time for Registration of Renewal After the Due Date of Registration

All RAs will be notified of their renewal in the form specified by the Board not earlier than 3 months and not later than 28 days prior to the expiry of the current registration under section 16(2) of the Architects Registration Ordinance (Cap. 408).

The foregoing fee reduction will last for one year during 2020.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Yours sincerely,
Queenie Wong
