|Abstract: ||Double taxation traditionally occurs when a taxpayer is taxed
twice on the same income by two jurisdictions (source
jurisdiction & residence jurisdiction). Relief is usually made on
a unilateral basis (domestic laws) or a bilateral basis (DTAs).
HKSAR is actively establishing a network of comprehensive
DTAs with its major trading and investment partners (over 20
agreements have been reached – not all are in force).
Where no comprehensive DTAs exist HKSAR has over 25
agreements for avoidance of double taxation on airline income,
6 on shipping income (plus 2 agreements combining two areas).
HKSAR is a destination for trade and investment, and seen as an
attractive entry for many countries into the wider South East
Asian economies. Also HKSARNZ
Free Trade Agreement.
HKSAR is mounting a serious challenge to Singapore (with
over 60 DTAs), as a location to locate holding companies.|
