Employment tax workshop - Ready for year-end filing?

29 March 2019, Hong Kong

By invitation only  

According to the 2019/20 Hong Kong Budget recently announced by the Financial Secretary, the Tax Policy Unit (TPU) will no longer be under the Financial Services and Treasury Bureau (FSTB), instead it will directly report to the Financial Secretary’s Office. We anticipate much greater focus on tax measures as a result, and possibly more resources to develop them.

On the other hand, to improve tax transparency, enhance the efficiency of tax enforcement and increase the level of tax compliance, the automatic exchange of financial account information under the common reporting standard (CRS) has brought a wide impact to the organisations operating on a regional and/or global basis. In Hong Kong, the number of CRS reportable jurisdiction has been increased to 126 as of today.

Given an increasing focus on regulatory compliance and rigorous enforcement of law in the local and global environment, the responsibility and accountability of HR, payroll and employment tax leaders are drastically different from the past. Non-compliance on employment tax matters has always been a focal point at discussions, and consequences are not only financial risks to the organisations, but also reputation risks that cannot be easily recovered.

In this seminar, our global mobility and employment tax professionals will share with you:

  • Our insights on common employment tax reporting blindspots and how these translate onto risks for your organisation;
  • Case studies to identify potential non-compliance risk in handling the employment tax filing; and
  • Step-by-step instruction and guidance on completing employer’s return with complex payroll and non-payroll issues.
