Hong Kong has been improving its tax exemption regime for investment funds in recent years, putting the SAR in a much more competitive position as a regional and international asset and fund management centre.

On the other hand, eligible companies and investment professionals receiving carried interest payments can now enjoy concessions on profits and salaries taxes, following the passage of the new Inland Revenue (Amendment) (Tax Concessions for Carried Interest) Ordinance on 28 April 2021. This long-awaited regime seeks to further strengthen Hong Kong's status as an international asset and wealth management hub and is a milestone development after almost a year of consultation and legislative process. It offers concessions to qualifying persons and qualifying employees in relation to eligible carried interest received by, or accrued to them, on or after 1 April 2020.

Join us on 24 August 2021, when PwC Hong Kong representative David Kan will explain key features of the fund tax exemption and carried interest tax concession regimes.
