Circular: SU/CCI/2013/005

To: All Principal Intermediaries

Dear Responsible Officer,

Section 34ZO of the Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Ordinance (MPFSO) requires registered intermediaries to deliver to the Authority for every reporting period a return in the specified form (annual return).  The Authority has issued Guidelines on Annual Returns to be Delivered by Registered Intermediaries (Guidelines VI.3) to provide guidance on the submission of these Returns.  As specified in the Guidelines VI.3, a reporting period begins on 1 January and ends on 31 December of each year.

To facilitate the submission of annual returns by registered intermediaries, the Authority has developed an eService which enables them to submit annual returns through the MPFA website.  To provide information about this eService, the Authority will conduct four briefing sessions (with walk-through demonstrations) to all Principal Intermediaries.

You are now invited to nominate one representative to attend one of the four briefing sessions.  Details are as follows: 

  Date Time  Venue
Session 1 2 Dec 2013 (Monday) 4:00 pm
23/F, Nexxus Building,
41 Connaught Road Central,
Hong Kong
Session 2 3 Dec 2013 (Tuesday) 4:00 pm
Session 3 4 Dec 2013 (Wednesday) 11:00 am
Session 4 5 Dec 2013 (Thursday) 11:00 am

Due to space constraints, we are only able to allocate one seat for each Principal Intermediary.  If there is an overwhelming response, we may consider arranging additional sessions.  Please note that attendees are expected to share the information and messages with their subsidiary intermediaries after attending the briefing.

Please submit your nomination(s) by returning the attached reply slip (by email) by 21 November 2013

Should you have any queries, please contact Ms Sophie Tsang on 2292 1565 or Ms Taki To on 2292 1096.

Thank you for your attention.
