Principal Intermediary Annual Return Form (Form Annual Return – PI)


1
Does a Contact Person in Section I need to be the same Contact Person as previously provided to the Authority in the Form of “Application for Registration as a Principal Intermediary” (Form INT-1)?
No, the name of the Contact Person to be provided in the Annual Return Form could be different from the Contact Person provided during registration. The purpose of the Contact Person in the Annual Return Form is to let the Authority contact him / her when the Authority needs to follow up / clarify with the principal intermediary on the submitted Annual Return Form. Therefore, he / she must be familiar with the information provided in the submitted Annual Return Form so that he / she could answer the Authority’s enquiries regarding the Annual Return Form.
2
What is meant by “the First Reporting Period for Reporting this Scheme under this Section II C”?
It means an MPF scheme involved when your company (including those subsidiary intermediaries attached to your company) carried on regulated activities during the reporting period, was first-time involved during that reporting period.

If an MPF scheme was first-time involved many years ago, and then no matter whether the MPF scheme continued to be involved or was no longer involved until the reporting period, your company should state “No” because the MPF scheme was indeed not first-time involved.
3
What is meant by the “sponsor” of an MPF scheme (in Section II D)?
It means if an MPF scheme was established by your company or your group company, then your company or your group company is the sponsor of the MPF scheme.

Does our company need to complete Section III F – Compliance / Internal Audit, given that our company has indicated that our company did not carry on regulated activities in Section II A?
No, your company should proceed to complete Section IV – Declaration.
5
What are meant by the Start Date and End Date of Conducting Review (in Section III F)?
The Dates refer to the start date and end date of an actual review exercise but not the start date and end date of the whole period covered by the review.

For example, some companies might conduct, say, a half-yearly review covering the first 6 months from January 2014 to June 2014 and the review lasted for 10 days from 2 to 11 July 2014, then they should fill in 02/07/14 as the Start Date and 11/07/14 as the End Date, but not 01/01/14 and 30/06/14 as the Start Date and End Date respectively.
