Hong Kong is renowned for its simple tax structure with low tax rates.

Once you are employed, you will be chargeable to salaries tax on your income arising in or derived from Hong Kong from an office, employment or any pension.

When you receive a Tax Return from the Inland Revenue Department, you are required to complete and file it on time to report your income for tax computation.

While salaries tax is applicable to most incomes, there are certain exemptions. You may compute your tax by referring to the Allowances, Deductions and Tax Rate Table.
