August 2017 - Hong Kong Releases Consultation Report on BEPS Legislation

On 31 July 2017, the Government released the consultation report on measures to counter base erosion and profit shifting (“BEPS”) (“the Report”) following its consultation exercise towards the end of 2016. The Report indicates that the proposals in relation to transfer pricing (“TP”), country-by-country (“CbC”) reporting and dispute resolution would be introduced as laws by the end of 2017 with effect to the 2018 taxation year. Corporations would need to prepare for these changes very quickly.
