    How do I find my BR number????

    I registered my business in 2019. I have the first two certificates but cannot find the third. I am not at home - it's most likely in my file, but I need to know my number and I don;t have a photo. I went looking for the photo of it on my phone (I always snap a photo of important docs)..... and it was on the phone which die.

    Sigh.

    Any suggestions? I know the first couple of strings as they do not change but it's the last 3 digits I need to figure out.....

    I went into E-tax but I cannot see anything helpful!

    Try looking in the backup of the phone you took the photo on.

    Thanks! The first time it just gave me the same digits I already had... the second time I paid HKD20 to get a duplicate copy which seems to be fine. Was having kittens. (I'm applying for my subsidy LOL).

    I tried that. I had a glitch with the backup (long story) and 9 months of the backup are missing. The very months I needed.

    If you have e-filed your tax return which covers profits tax for the same business/sole prop, you can login to your eTax account (same as efiling) to look at records of previously efiled tax returns (under Tax Position or one of them tabs) to see the BR number filled in on the form.

    Do a company search and get details of your company

    Thereafter call IRD
