What's On

To facilitate the development of family office business in Hong Kong as announced by the Chief Executive in his 2022 Policy Address, the Hong Kong SAR Government has published draft legislation for implementing a concessionary tax regime for family-owned investment holding vehicles (FIHVs) managed by a single family office (SFO) in Hong Kong.

Gazetted on 9 December 2022, the Inland Revenue (Amendment) (Tax Concessions for Family-owned Investment Holding Vehicles) Bill 2022 (the Bill) proposes profits tax exemption for assessable profits earned from certain transactions by FIHVs owned by ultra-high-net-worth individuals and their family members with effect from the 2022/23 year of assessment, subject to fulfilment of specified eligibility conditions.

How will the Bill facilitate Hong Kong in becoming a family office hub? How can family office businesses reap the benefits of the tax exemption, and how should tax professionals prepare their clients for the new regime?

Join us on 7 February when Alice Leung, tax partner at KPMG and Christine Ho, Deputy Global Head of Family Office at Invest Hong Kong, will provide an overview of the key requirements for a FIHV, as well as the Bill's impact and opportunities for SFOs in Hong Kong.
