2019 is an eventful year.  G20 endorsed the ambitious work programme relating to tax challenges arising from digitalization that consists of two pillars.  IRD issued or rewrote a few departmental notes, including the ones on transfer pricing documentation, transfer pricing between associated persons and attribution of profits to permanent establishment in Hong Kong.  Hong Kong signed the Fifth Protocol to the Arrangement for Avoidance of Double Taxation with the Mainland of China which incorporates a Teachers Article.  The Multilateral Convention to Implement Tax Treaty Related Measures to Prevent BEPS will be implemented in Hong Kong.  IRD has recently completed its departmental information technology plan study and plans to introduce e-filing for profits tax returns with financial statements attached in iXBRL format.  With tax information obtained under AEOI and CbC reporting, operations within IRD will be changed and annual submission of profits tax returns for all businesses will be required.  All these new developments and changes will impact tax practitioners in Hong Kong who need to make timely preparation.
