New Tax Team Development

Dear Valuable Clients,

Taxation in Hong Kong used to be regarded as simple, easy to administer and on territorial concept. Following the rapid growth of cross-border transactions and aggressive transparency and co-operation requirements laid down by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Hong Kong has been updating its tax legislation to meet the international standards, including transfer pricing (TP) regulatory regime in 2018, as well as the foreign-sourced income exemption (FSIE) regime in 2023.

To enhance Hong Kong’s competitiveness, the Hong Kong Government also introduced more tax incentives in recent years such as tax concessions for limited partnership funds, family-owned investment holding vehicles, etc.

These changes will have a significant impact on most taxpayers in Hong Kong. Given the fast-changing tax environment in Hong Kong, our services are not limited to the annual tax filing services only.

To cope with the ongoing complexification of the tax legislation, we have divided the Tax Team into 4 sub-teams. The four teams are performing the same routine duties except each team is structured to be specialized and focused on different areas of taxation services.
