Welcome to Hong Kong
Hong Kong is a leading international financial centre and the gateway to mainland China.
Investors are serviced by the largest banks in the world, with institutions offering a diverse range of sophisticated financial services. All major international accounting and audit firms have offices in Hong Kong, as do most of the leading international law firms.
The infrastructure, cost effectiveness, ease of doing business and an attractive taxation system create an environment conducive to setting up international business structures in the territory. In international circles, Hong Kong rates as a highly desirable jurisdiction in which to set up a business.
The tax system in Hong Kong is straightforward with a flat corporate rate of 16.5%. Hong Kong also has both personal income taxes and property taxes.
There are no capital gains taxes, sales taxes, estate duties, or withholding taxes on dividends or interest. There are also no capital exchange controls.
Importantly, a Hong Kong company is only taxed on its profits arising in or derived from a trade or business in Hong Kong, foreign-sourced income is therefore exempt from tax in Hong Kong.
