Low, Simple and Competitive Tax System

Businesses and individuals in Hong Kong enjoy one of the most tax-friendly systems in the world. Only three direct taxes are imposed and there are generous allowances and deductions which can reduce your taxable amount.

The three taxes are:

Profits tax for the first HK$2 million of profits of corporations is 8.25%. Profits above that amount will be subject to a tax rate of 16.5 percent. For unincorporated business (i.e. partnerships and sole proprietorships), the two-tiered tax rates will correspondingly be set at 7.5 percent and 15 percent.

Salaries tax with standard rate of 15 percent

Property tax of 15 percent

Here are the taxes which Hong Kong does not impose:
No sales tax or VAT
No withholding tax
No capital gains tax
No tax on dividends
No estate tax

Free Trade Port

Another benefit of setting up business in Hong Kong is its free trade policy. The city’s free port status and easy customs procedures make it easier for businesses and companies to operate.
