Advantages Of The Hong Kong Tax System

These are the main reasons so many businesses incorporate in Hong Kong.

No Tax On Foreign-Sourced Income

Businesses operating in Hong Kong only pay tax on income earned in Hong Kong which is a great advantage if your company trades internationally. Even if you do make some sales in Hong Kong the rate is low at 8.25% on profits up to $2,000,000 HKD, and 16.5% on any part of profits over $2,000,000 HKD.

Capital Gains Tax Exempt

Hong Kong does not tax capital gains, giving businesses an extra benefit. This means that businesses can sell their assets without having to pay taxes as long as they are not assets sourced from Hong Kong.

No VAT/GST

Hong Kong does not have a value-added tax (VAT) or goods and services tax (GST), which can help lower the cost of doing business. This means that companies do not have to charge VAT/GST on their products or services and do not have to pay VAT/GST on their purchases. This can result in significant cost savings for companies.

No Withholding Tax

In Hong Kong, companies can receive dividends, interest, or royalties from foreign companies without paying withholding tax.

Tax Exemptions

Certain types of enterprises, such as those involved in research and development or operating in specific specified regions, are eligible for tax exemptions in Hong Kong. This can drastically lower your tax obligations so is well worth checking if you are eligible.

Double Taxation Agreements

Hong Kong has DTAs with numerous nations that can assist businesses in avoiding double taxation. By awarding credits for taxes paid in the other country, DTAs protect businesses from being taxed twice on the same income. If your company operates internationally you may find this useful since it can reduce your overall tax burden.

FAQ of Hong Kong Taxation

Under territorial concept, only income arising in or derived from sources in Hong Kong is subject to tax. In other words, any income or profit derived from a source outside Hong Kong is NOT subject to tax in Hong Kong

Common examples of business where the profits derived by a Hong Kong company may be treated as offshore sourced and non-taxable in Hong Kong:

  • Online Trading Business
  • Consultancy Service
  • Web-marketing
  • Overseas Rental

The application itself is easy and free of charge, i.e. just tick a box in the profit tax return. The complexity comes on the reviewing and investigation stages.

The HKIRD will do the investigation usually by sending the company with a list of queries asking around the company’s operation cycle and asking for detailed information of the transactions. And to reply to these queries, you should need help from the tax professionals.

The company must be able to prove its business is free from Hong Kong elements, e.g.

  • No Hong Kong Customers
  • No Hong Kong Suppliers
  • No Hong Kong Office and Staffs

The HKIRD will normally issue the 1st profit tax return to the company after 18 months of its incorporation date.

  • Normal Filing Time
  • Extension with tax representative under Block Extension Scheme:-

(Year ended 31 December)15 August
(Year ended 31 March)15 November
(Year ended 31 March, with current year loss)31 January

The company has to file a complete set of returns which includes the following:

  1. The specific profits tax return form as issued by the Inland Revenue Department
  2. A supplementary form as issued by the Inland Revenue Department for your tax data and financial data etc.
  3. A certified copy of the Balance Sheet, Auditor’s Report and Profit & Loss Account for the year of assessment.
  4. A tax computation of Assessable Profits (or Adjusted Loss).
