Developments in international tax arena to increase transparency and ensure business substance have been made at a rapid pace. To increase tax transparency between jurisdictions and ensure tax compliance, the Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development and the G20 have put in place a global standard for the automatic exchange of financial account information, also known as the Common Reporting Standard ("CRS"). More than 100 jurisdictions have since committed to CRS and in Hong Kong the first exchange of financial account information was made in 2018 covering 75 jurisdictions. In November last year, the number of CRS reportable jurisdictions was increased to 126. In addition to this, the process of applying for a Hong Kong tax resident certificate by both corporations and individuals to enjoy tax treaty benefits has become more challenging than ever as a result of a tightening in conditions under increased intergovernmental efforts to tackle tax avoidance.

In this first workshop of the "Managing Tax Controversy Series", tax and CRS experts from PwC will discuss the latest development and provide an overview of CRS application in Hong Kong and the Mainland. They will also address the issue of determination of tax residency and potential tax implications to the individual account holders, as well as challenges with and approaches to handling the application of a Hong Kong tax resident certificate.

This workshop series should be of interest to all those who would like to have a better understanding of handling tax controversy situations in Hong Kong and China, and is particularly relevant to those who work in the accounting, finance, tax or legal fields.

Upon registration of this workshop, participants will receive a coupon code, which is entitled to a special discount of $50 applicable for the same person to another workshop in this series.

You may also sign up all four workshops to enjoy a total savings of $250! If you are interested in taking up this offer, please contact Ms Karen Au by phone at 2823 1200 or by email at .
