Many corporations have been striving and devoting resources in research and development ("R&D") activities, seeking for exceling in today's competitive market.   Historically there were limited tax incentives for R&D activities in Hong Kong and thus many corporations are prone to conduct R&D activities in China for cost and tax reasons.


The HKSAR and China central governments, along government of other APAC countries, seemingly share the same view that technological advancement is one of the keys to bring up the business momentum.  In this regard, both the HKSAR and China central governments actively introduce R&D related incentives with a view to promoting technological innovation and attract talents. For instance, the HKSAR government introduced enhanced tax deductions for expenditure incurred on qualified R&D on or after 1 April 2018. Whereas, the PRC government introduced various incentives including additional deduction for qualifying R&D incurred outside PRC. It should therefore a good point in time to review the R&D related incentives of both sides, and make a wise decision for your clients / corporations in setting up the mid-to-long term development strategies.


Acknowledging the importance of R&D to the business and complication of this matter, the Institute cordially invites our members to a seminar conducted by Deloitte China's Senior Manager Cheryl Chen and Tax Manager Gary Leung on 11th June 2019 (Tuesday), with a view to providing insights to your businesses to navigate through this ever-changing business landscape. This seminar will highlight the practical guidelines and will cover the latest tax incentives available in Hong Kong and PRC in relation to research and development activities and the prerequisite for enjoying the tax incentives.
