羅兵咸永道預期政府綜合盈餘達499億港元

PwC predicts consolidated government surplus to hit HK$49.9bn 

Jan 2016 - (Cantonese)

 

羅兵咸永道預期,特區政府於2015/16財政年度整體財政收入為5,167億港元,支出為4,212億港元,財政盈餘高達955億港元,遠高於特區政府原先預計的368億港元盈餘。撇除政府早前公布將456億港元外匯基金投資收益撥入房屋儲備金,特區政府於本財政年度將錄得 499億港元的綜合盈餘。羅兵咸永道預計鉅額盈餘主要歸因於遠超政府預期的印花稅收入。

PwC expects the HKSAR Government to record a HK$95.5 billion consolidated budget surplus in the fiscal year 2015/16, based on projected fiscal revenue of HK$516.7 billion and expenditure of HK$421.2 billion.  The surplus is much higher than the HK$36.8 billion previously forecast by the Government. After taking away the HK$45.6 billion of investment gains from the Exchange Fund that the Government has designated for the Housing Reserve Fund, the consolidated surplus will shrink to HK$49.9 billion.  PwC expects that this huge surplus is primarily attributable to much higher than expected stamp duty revenue.

Hong Kong as a "Super Connector" under One Belt One Road initiative

Jan 2016 - (Cantonese)

香港在『一帶一路』發展策略擔當“超級聯繫人”,以及國內企業 "走出去" 的平台。這些發展能為香港經濟帶來新動力,為貿易及物流、金融服務、高新科技及專業服務業帶來機遇。

Hong Kong is playing the role as a "Super Connector" under One Belt One Road (OBOR) and the platform for Mainland enterprises "Going Global". It can bring a new momentum for Hong Kong economy and promote business opportunities for trade and logistics, financial services, hi-tech, professional services, etc.

為租賃業務提供更具競爭力的稅務措施

A more competitive tax regime for leasing industry

Jan 2016 - (Cantonese)

『一帶一路』涉及的物流和基建項目,為重型生產機械租賃服務製造了龐大需求,因此,我們建議當局放寬《稅務條例》第39E條的限制,令香港企業在香港以外使用之生產機械,能獲得折舊免稅的扣除,為香港企業提供合理的營運平台。除了重型生產機械之外,『一帶一路』亦將帶動飛機租賃和航空融資服務的需求,事實上,行政長官去年在施政報告亦提出推動航空融資業務,我們期望政府能盡快推出具體措施,包括改革有關飛機租賃的稅收政策,以抓緊發展良機。

One Belt One Road will bring huge demand for machinery leases for logistics and infrastructure construction projects. PwC therefore urges the Government to relax restrictions imposed by Section 39E of the Inland Revenue Ordinance on depreciation allowances for production machinery used by Hong Kong-based enterprises outside the territory. This move would provide a reasonable operating platform for Hong Kong-based enterprises. As the Chief Executive announced plans to promote aviation leasing services in his Policy Address last year, we recommend the Government implement measures such as tax reform for aircraft leases so as to seize these business opportunities.
