From 1 April 2023, the Hong Kong SAR Government introduced a new registration system for dealers in precious metals and stones to bolster the fight against money laundering and terrorist funding. The HKSAR Customs and Excise Department will oversee this system, ensuring registered dealers follow the rules and properly tackle money laundering and terrorist financing activities.

For non-Hong Kong precious metals and stones dealers, they must file a cash transaction report to the HKSAR Customs and Excise Department for any specified cash transactions. This report should include travel details, information about the dealer or their representative, customer particulars, and transaction specifics. It must be submitted within one day after the transaction or before the dealer/representative leaves Hong Kong, whichever is earlier.
