May be an image of 8 people, people standing and text
自2021年1月19日國家稅務局發佈了《港澳涉稅專業人士在中國(廣東)自由貿易試驗區深圳前海蛇口片區執業管理暫行辦法》(以下簡稱《辦法》),全面放寬港澳涉稅專業人士執業要求,包括取消資格考試,並改為執業登記;拓寬服務區域,放寬服務範圍,取消執業年齡、合夥人資質、內地執業時間限制等,大大為香港稅務師和澳門會計師跨境執業提供了便利。
在向深圳市稅務局遞交《港澳涉稅專業服務人員執業登記表》前,香港稅務師必先要取得本學會出具的推薦函,以茲證明申請人連續3年從事涉稅專業的實際工作經驗而且最近3年未因執業行為不當受到所在地區主管部門行政處罰或行業懲戒。香港稅務學會(The Taxation Institute of Hong Kong)是獲授權在香港辦理和出具推薦函的唯一機構。
截至12月16日,學會已出具超過50份推薦函,而當中已46名香港稅務師成功獲得跨境執業資格。在取得跨境執業資格後,更有稅務師成功在深圳發起設立稅務師事務所,當中5間已完成了行政登記,可於前海正式執業,開展稅務服務。其中1間更是由港深澳三地稅務師共同設立的稅務師事務所。
有關申請香港稅務學會推薦函以便進行跨境執業登記的詳情,請瀏覽學會網站。
