About the seminar:

Hong Kong adopts a territorial source principle of taxation. The resident status of the taxpayer generally does not affect his Hong Kong tax exposure. In principle, non-residents are only liable to Hong Kong tax to the extend of their activities in Hong Kong based on the provisions of the Hong Kong Inland Revenue Ordinance. With the expansion of the Hong Kong treaty network in the past three years, the Hong Kong tax exposures of non-residents from treaty countries are further governed by these treaties. The interaction of the Hong Kong domestic tax laws and the treaty provisions will become increasingly relevant for non-resident individuals and companies. In this seminar, the speaker will discuss the Hong Kong tax exposures on non-residents in the context of Hong Kong domestic tax laws and Hong Kong tax treaty.

About the speaker:

As a fellow member of the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Chartered Association of Certified Accountants and a member of the CPA Australia, Mr. Wong has many years of experience in Hong Kong taxation gained through working in the Inland Revenue Department, teaching taxation in local tertiary institutions and providing training and in-house technical advice within professional firms.
