The Inland Revenue Department’s (“IRD”) practice in reviewing charities’ tax exemption status continues to evolve. However, many tax exempt charities misunderstand that all their income is automatically tax-exempt under Section 88 of the Inland Revenue Ordinance, leaving them unprepared for the IRD’s reviews and getting penalised for non-compliance with requirements which they were not aware of.

In this webinar, the speakers will share their latest experience in assisting charities on resolving their tax problems, including:-

1.Update on charities’ common misunderstanding about tax

2.Practical solutions for charities’ common tax issues reviewed by the IRD

3.Filing obligations and penalties

4.Case sharing
