What's On

One of the key recent developments of the Greater Bay Area (GBA) has been the introduction of the Individual Income Tax (IIT) subsidy, which enables qualifying individuals to pay a similar rate of personal tax as they do in Hong Kong. However, applicants for the IIT subsidy must stay up-to-date on the requirements and strictly follow the guidelines, or risk missing out the benefits.

Another policy to encourage Hong Kong people to enter the GBA market is the GBA Youth Employment Scheme, announced in the 2020 Policy Address. Under this scheme, enterprises can receive subsidies to recruit Hong Kong graduates to work in the Mainland GBA cities.

To help members stay informed about the tax-related policies in the GBA, and similar incentives in other parts of China, the Chamber has invited a panel of tax experts to share with members their insights on the following:

- Why working in GBA Mainland Cities can be a promising opportunity for Hong Kong graduates across different disciplines for long term career development
- Overview of the economic prospects of GBA Mainland cities and their respective industry specializations
- Experience sharing on claiming the IIT in the GBA, and observations of the typical pitfalls
- Common patterns for talent movement across the Mainland-Hong Kong border, which tend to vary across industries and seniority of talent, and the related individual tax implications
- Overview of other China IIT incentives policies to encourage an influx of talent
