Limited Liability Companies in Hong Kong are required to file an annual Profits Tax Return (BIR51). Newly incorporated companies must file their first Return 18 months after incorporation. The declaration must be accompanied by the following documents:
- Annual financial statements (balance sheet, income statement, cash flow statement, explanatory notes, tax calculation statement).
- Auditor’s report on the annual financial statements.
- If there are grounds for application of income tax exemption – Statement of the right to apply the territorial principle of taxation.
There is no such need. You can choose the way that is most convenient for you. Daily (up-to-date) accounting is suitable for companies that are active. If the business has few operations, you can dip into finances once a year and prepare financial statements at the end of the financial year. However, it is important to keep all primary documentation throughout the year and to comply with all statutory deadlines.
Yes, under the Companies Ordinance (Section 405) all Hong Kong companies are required to have their financial statements audited annually and submit it to the Inland Revenue Department along with their tax returns.
As a rule, these are: bank statements from all accounts of the company, contracts, invoices for payment. All documents must be kept by the company for seven years from the date of the transaction.
Hong Kong adopts the principle of territorial source taxation. Only profits which have their source in Hong Kong are taxable. Profits from other sources are not subject to tax in Hong Kong.
Profits from Hong Kong source are taxed under the two-tier system: 8.25% on the first 2 million HKD of taxable income and 16.5% on the rest of the taxable income.
Every year the company submits a tax return to the Hong Kong Inland Revenue Department, and along with it an audited financial statement. If there are grounds for application of income tax exemption in Hong Kong, the company prepares and submits a statement of eligibility for exemption on the basis of territorial taxation. The Inland Revenue Department analyzes the submitted documents. If there are no questions and doubts, the Department issues a letter confirming that the company’s profits are not subject to taxation. If there is reason to doubt the accuracy of the determination of the territory of the source of profit, the Inland Revenue Department sends a request for additional data. After analyzing the information provided, a decision is made, which is also recorded in a separate letter.
As a jurisdiction, Hong Kong was slow out of the gate when it came to innovation in Fintech. But a committed public-private alliance determined to create Hong Kong as a top Fintech center, a promising move, soon constituted this initial hesitancy.
Giving a business a name requires not only registering and incorporating it. There are plenty of other aspects that need to be taken care of as soon as you get your business ready and you have started to work. Other than accounting, tax duties
