Avoid double taxation in Hong Kong

Hong Kong has a double taxation relief policy, meaning that double taxation will not arise when two different tax jurisdictions overlap. This allows companies that have multiple headquarters to avoid taxation in all the countries where they produce profit.
Hong Kong has a territorial taxation and only the profit/income produced in Hong Kong is subject to the applicable taxation principles. In most cases, company income from sources other than Hong Kong is not taxed.
Our company formation specialists in Hong Kong can give you complete details about the taxation regime for your company.

Double taxation agreements in Hong Kong

The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government concluded several comprehensive double taxation agreements/arrangements with Hong Kong’s trading partners. DTAs or tax treaties prevent double taxation and fiscal evasion. They are also an important tool for increasing the cooperation between Hong Kong and other international tax administrations. A DTA produces effects for resident Hong Kong companies and companies resident in a jurisdiction where a DTA is in force.
double taxation agreement is useful for foreign investors not only because it allows for taxes to be paid only once, but also because they can assess their tax liabilities according to the type of activity they perform in Hong Kong and other partner countries. Branches and subsidiaries in Hong Kong also benefit from these agreements.
