26 October 2012, Hong Kong
By invitation only

The year 2012 has seen significant tax developments in Hong Kong. In the Li & Fung case, the decision of the Courts have shed light on the source rule for service income where the relevant underlying services are not performed by the taxpayers themselves but by their contracted service providers outside of Hong Kong. The decisions of the Courts in Nice Cheer have raised interesting discussions on the different tax treatment between unrealized gains on revaluation of trading securities and unrealized losses on the same.

The long-awaited new law granting tax deductions for capital expenditure incurred on the purchase of certain intellectual property rights have presented both opportunities and challenges for taxpayers.

In addition, we will also cover the Inland Revenue Department’s revision of its assessing practice in relation to tax deductions for recharge of share-based payments in a group context.

Join our informative seminar to acquire a better understanding of the above changes and be equipped with the knowledge to identify potential tax issues which may assist you to mitigate your tax risks, help ensure compliance and capitalize on available opportunities.
