What's On

Registration Closed

The HKSAR Government has gazetted the Inland Revenue (Amendment) (Taxation on Specified Foreign-sourced Income) Bill 2022 on 28 October with a view to introducing the same into the Legislative Council on 2 November.

Under the FSIE regime, which is expected to come into force on 1 January 2023, tax exemptions currently granted to specified types of foreign-sourced passive income received in Hong Kong by multinational enterprises may no longer be available unless certain conditions such as economic substance requirements are met. The meaning of passive income includes interest, dividend, disposal gain on equity interests and income from intellectual properties. To facilitate implementation of the new regime, the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) has issued administrative guidelines and provided instructions for applying for Commissioner's Opinion (CIR Opinion) as an interim measure for entities that wish to ensure compliance with the economic substance requirements before the new legislation comes into force.

The Chamber has once again invited Sarah Chan and Kwan Yu, Tax Partners at Deloitte China, to provide an update of the legislative provisions as given in the Bill. They will also share insights on the Bill's impact on businesses and offer advice on actions that can be taken by affected entities including key considerations in applying for CIR Opinion.
