New Tax Concessions for Shipping-Related Businesses with Operations in HK


New Tax Concessions for Shipping-Related Businesses with Operations in HK
2022-10-28

In July 2022, the Hong Kong Legislative Council passed the Inland Revenue (Amendment) (Tax Concessions for Certain Shipping-related Activities) Ordinance 2022 (the “New Law”), which takes retrospective effect and applies to sums received by or accrued to qualifying shipping commercial principals on or after 1 April 2022.

The New Law aims to attract overseas shipping commercial principals to set up their business presence in Hong Kong, with a view to stimulating local demand for shipping-related services and promoting the development of these shipping activities in Hong Kong, thereby making the tax regime in Hong Kong competitive vis-à-vis major competitors in the Asia-Pacific region.
