Effective operation of Hong Kong's simple and low tax rates system requires a high degree of compliance by taxpayers.  Hence, the Inland Revenue Department (“IRD”) would take a serious view on incorrect or non-reporting of profit / income by taxpayers and institute penal actions empowered by the law against the wrongdoing taxpayers.  In this connection, how to prevent and manage tax controversies would be an important agenda of taxpayers.


The purpose of this seminar is to provide insights on the recent trend of tax controversy in Hong Kong, and how to prevent and manage tax controversy risks through demonstration and interactive discussion of actual case studies.  Through case studies, you could be able to obtain a sense on the IRD’s key practice focus on the controversial tax matters.
